How do I go about obtaining Direct TV? The place already has the satellite dish. What do I need to do in order to get the receive and sign up? I appreciate all the help you can give me.

Go to the States buy a receiver and sign up for service. Then bring your receiver down to Belize.

I believe Central America uses a different satellite than the US? I have been told conflicting stories on this, anyone know for sure?

Here you need a minimum 6' dish to pick up the signal.

So it is the same sat, just need a bigger dish to catch the signal?

I believe most houses in the US have the small oval dishes.
