No, it's interesting, alternatives are good to know about which is why I posted the FTA ch list. FTA offers an incredible opportunity to see a multitude of ch's, broadcasts, and alternative programming from around the world. It is especially handy for bi-lingual persons or people who may be transplants from another country.
I looked into FTA years ago but decided against it for two main reasons:
- Any needed southerly exposure for sat is not possible for me (trees)
- Thousands of ch's to choose from, but very few I would watch.
When I narrowed the available ch's down to English versions, then filtered out the many duplicates (multiple PBS', ABC's, etc...) then filtered out the networks I'd never bother with (kids stuff, religious ramblings, etc...) there wasn't much left for my interests.
Pentagon TV would certainly be interesting from time to time, but for me such infrequent viewing couldn't justify the cost and tinkering (this coming from an A/V tinkerer).
OTOH, there is always the availability of Al Jazeera.
