No.  Sorry.  Satellites at 100 West and 119 West orbit longitude are well below your western horizon, as viewed from Liberia.

Look in Lyngsat https://www.lyngsat.com/atlantic.html for TV programming from the US to West Africa.  You can see satellites as far west at 82W deg orbit longitude.  A beam map is shown for each TV channel.  The map must cover Liberia.  Dish diameter sizes are suggested for each downlink power contour.  Check your dish pointing angles here: Dish pointing West Africa.

Most TV is in C band and needs a 1.8m dish or larger, circular polarisation C band LNB and general purpose FTA satellite receiver.

Consulting a local satellite Tv shop in Liberia is suggested.  They will know what is feasible, from experience.

Best regards, Eric.
