Jetstream: TV over VSAT to your yacht. | Slingbox: TV over VSAT to your yacht. |

Jetstream is a company that hosts your satellite TV receivers at their data center and then streams them over the internet to wherever you are. This allows you to watch your favorite TV channels from anywhere in the world, even though you are out of range of the satelite TV reception.

You subcribe to Jetstream on a monthly basis. They install a dedicated satellite receiver, just for you, in the data center and transmit the content to you via the internet. You then access the data on your laptop, or the Jetset settop box on your yacht using VSAT, DSL, WiFi or whatever internet access you have available.

You will be provided with login details to access your data stream on your laptop, which can then be connected to the TV on the yacht.

A normal, standard definition TV picture will use about 1.5mbps of bandwidth. Jetstream offers four lower definition speeds from 1.5mbps to as low as 175kbps

Check  the fair use policy with your satellite provider before subscribing to any TV over IP service.
