International broadcast options in Northern Virginia market?

I've got FIOS for my television programming service, and seeking to add more international programming to the linup to include more Arabic, and ideally Uzbek, language programming.

FIOS itself is limited so that's a no go. I dabbled in some IP based services before, but it was kind of clunky. I'm assuming the third option would be satellite based.

Reccomendations?

Is this a content or a distribution question?  Are you wanting to be over the air or IP based?   Are you a broadcaster or a video publisher?

No, I'm just a consumer looking to expand programming at home.

The following link will give you information about ALL kinds of shortwave broadcasts which can be received on shortwave radios.

Some shortwave radios are very sophisticated (and expensive)
There are all kinds of possibilities listed on this link. Uzbek, if available, is more likely on shortwave than other services reachable in N VA.

you will need a C band antenna and receiver if the direct-tv (small dish) providers in your area are not sufficient. The dishes are quite large (10-16feet) and you need a line of sight to the equator
