Television On Board

I guess we've been a little spoiled by having cable TV at the dock, even though cable TV is old technology. It is enjoyable to watch ball games and other shows on rainy nights. This summer we're going to be sailing the great lakes, and was just wondering if anyone has any reasonably priced solution for us to have television. I didn't know whether an antenna or a digital receiver, etc. or streaming, none of which I know anything about, would work for us.
would certainly appreciate your thoughts, thanks, Rich

I don't have any experience with Starlink, but you might want to look into it. It seems to have thousands of happy sailors using it...and it would get you other internet functions like email, weather, etc.  

The word on the water is to NOT subscribe to the expensive marine package, but instead some cheaper (RV???) package which still works on the water. 

There are FB groups dedicated to starlink for boaters you might want to check out for real advice and experience.

A number of years ago we  upgraded to a Glomex mast mounted digital antenna. It does an excellent job of picking digital broadcasts.
