I thought Québec and Mexico did belong to the North American Network too.

There is only a minority in north america who happens to be white and
only some of them do speak english.

I remember the times when I could watch mexican tv transmitted from a
studio in florida.

Today everything is crypted on the sats. We have to use the internet
when we want someting special here in germany.

I guess Karin and me are not the only ones who do net even own a tv set.
The internet is the richer choice.

Even if it is mostly audio, video is nasty overseas, I am shure it does
make an impact in north america. Listening to my VoIP fone is mostly
impossible now at least overseas. I used to be able to fone overseas.
but even the landline has deteriorated because the fonecompanies have
switched to VoIP themselves.
