To watch on the actual TV, I log on with the laptop, then use an HDMI cable to the TV.
Slightly cumbersome, but it means we get TV on the TV, including the Sky mobile channels.
If you can get a Mifi with 20Gb in Jersey, that has to be the way to go initially. Not sure where you get £500 of up front costs though. The Mifi is about £80 from 3, or you can get them unlocked on eBay.

My plan is to have a chunky aerial on the coachroof connected to a control box which rebroadcasts a strong 3G signal on the boat, and also passes upstream data through the same booster. That's what I've ordered for £500.
Hopefully that will give me a reliable quick 3G connection on the boat (and will improve things for any other mobile user within 250m!). I'll then use the Jersey Telecom mi-fi to connect to the fabulous 3G signal and stream TV to iPads. In the UK we'll use our existing iPhones as they have 'all you can eat' contracts, so no need for a mi-fi, they should also get good signals through the booster.
Well that is the idea anyway...
