Have you ever cruised a few hundred miles away from your home port and wondered why some of you favorite TV shows were suddenly unavailable via your onboard satellite TV system? We’ve heard this question from countless boaters here in the U.S., so we decided to investigate. The answer and the route to extending local channels to your home on the water may surprise you.

Download our free paper, “Get the Scoop — Local Channels and Boaters“, to find out why boaters lose local channels when they cruise outside their local service area, the laws that dictate this situation, and what you can do to help change it.

If you’ve discovered an alternate way to get your local channels or have had some success in speaking with your government representatives about updating the law, please let us know in the comments section!
