I know how you feel. I missed out on seeing Battlestar Galactica when it was originally played because Virgin TV and Sky got into a little spat over
broadcast fees. Cancelled my entire cable TV subscription (around £50/month) in protest. Never got another cable or satellite TV. Just use a
Manhattan FreeSat receiver and BitTorrent.
You can also get satellite TV cards for a PC. Some accept encryption cards. I've played around with HDTV terrestial digital TV dongles for laptops as
well. But they don't work unless their is a large digital aerial.
