Wimax problem can be solve by using Single Solution LNB. thats what i did. Its expensive tho (i bought it for 1500 few months ago and now its above 2000) but thats the only solution available in Pakistani market. I still have problem with weaker frequencies coz the wimax tower is about hundred meters from my house.
Pakistani channels are available on 5 satellites so the answer for 1st question is either u use 5 dishes (for best result) or a motorized dish . Multi LNB solution is also available.
There are many sat receivers available in the market mostly china made obviously and cheaper ranging from 2000-3500. as we are talking about FTA (Free To Air) channels so any FTA reciever would do the job nicely.
U need access to atleast 3 sats to get most of the pakistani channels including big names like Geo, ARY, Hum TV, Express, Indus Network. Paksat is one of them which carrys only Pakistani channels. It used to has 4-5 channels couple of years ago but many channels have joined this sat due to the low carriage fee and other home advantages. Now this sat has more than 30 channels including Indus channels, MTV Pakistan, VH1 Pakistan, Business Plus, VU 1-4, Play, Apna Channels, Sindh TV. Most demanding sat is Asiasat 3S which carrys Geo News, Aaj, Hum TV, Masala, TV One, News One, PTV Network. Last sat to go for is Intelsat 10 it has ARY Network, Express news, Dawn, Samaa, Dunya, AVT Khyber.
There is also one more sat u can consider Thaicom 5 which used to has many pakistani channels but most of them migrated to Paksat, but it still has some worth watching channels like Filmax, Filmazia, Channel 5, Fun TV, Starlite, Silver Screen, KTN.
