Satellite TV in Belize

If you stay out of town, too far to get cable or insist on that high definition signal with Dolby surround sound you cannot yet get from local cable, there is satellite TV. The advantage to being so close to North America, the satellite footprint of most television signals covers Belize with excellent signal quality.

C-Band is widely available as are Direct TV and Dish Network. You need usually at least a six foot dish is required for good performance. Real satellite TV aficionados however go the extra mile and import 8 and even 10 foot dishes for non compromise TV reception, even in strong rain.

Fore those moving to Belize we strongly recommend that you bring your own satellite TV receivers. It's cheaper to purchase them in the USA and then just pay the local dealer to provide the dish and setup.
