Need more US channels - anyone got a home media thing setup?

Hi guys, I live with my friend and in our area we only have this service called EVARD that supply us cable tv - and it's really shit and also expensive

http://www.evard.ch/index.php?option...d=36&Itemid=44

No Swisscom service where we are

Is there some kind of digital player or something I can buy that can give me channels or access to the US channels like MTV etc etc?

Something where I have to use the internet wifi in my home or anything to give me more channels?

Thanks

Presumably you mean "live" channels and I'm guessing you also don't get Cablecom, right?

Try Hulu Plus with an anonymous US proxy. Between that and iTunes, I never bother to turn the TV on anymore.

Look up sligbox. The actual box needs to be set up in the US (friend/family, but they also have places that provide this service), and then you can get all of the US channels (it is just like have the cable box from the US). Quality depends on upload/download internet speeds, but can get close to HD.

Hey there. I just answered a similar question on the "Any equivalents of Hulu or streaming Netflix?" Thread above. Check it out...and you're welcome ahead of time
