My US TV shows

Recommended Posts

I’ll be relocating to Ajijic on 7/1/19. Not too concerned, but are US TV shows broadcast there? Silly things like Judge Judy or Jeopardy or say any prime time shows?

We have Star satellite which is Canadian.  We get ABC, CBS NBC and most all the other channels .... there is no reason whatsoever for you to miss out on what you like to watch.

Or.... you can buy an android box for TV (requires WiFi) and then have hundreds of channels world wide.  Service is spotty when WiFi signal is weak. But after the cost of the box (around $750 - $1000 PESOS),  it's all free

If your modem is close enough to your Android box, you can use an ethernet cable, which will help a lot. Stronger signal, more stable.

There's always USTV now. You can get USA networks free, plus PBS, and other channels at cost. I am a Jeopardy! junkie too....

Can you get USTV on a smart TV?

Not sure if they have an app for that but I do know you can't get it with a Roku device or TV. Shame because I used to do that but Roku banned them a year or so ago.  Seems they are banned for a piracy issue but you can get it on your phone and mirror to your TV, assuming your phone and TV have that capability.

Here is a nice list of iptv services with links to the apps. Just do a little youtubing and figure out which one is right for you. I know this isn't exactly legal but you're already in the gray area if you're having to resort to a VPN or Shaw satellite for USA content.

We just used Derek (he had an ad in the Guad Reporter) who came and installed Firesticks on our two Samsung TVs. Now, we have access to practically everything and it's all FREE (after the cost of installation/Firesticks). He spent a lot of time here until everything was up and running. I really recommend him. FWIW, one of the access points (or whatever you call it) is the same as I have on my Android tablet. No more $130/month cable bills. If you go to Play Store, just download USA TV & Radio. You'll be amazed at what's out there for free!
