Hi
We have just been searching the internet for info on the above for when we move to au, as we didnt know if we would be able to get any of the same channels we recieve here.
i thought the info we found would be worth sharing so her you go, hope its usefull

There are various channel packages available at similar costs to ours in oz, most have their own variation of the channels we watch but it seems some of the channels are the same,
from what we have read you recieve them through the satelite dish and reciever box given to you from the company you subscribe to.....

also there is something called a SLING BOX, that you purchase for a one off payment about £100, you can then plug this in at a good relatives/friends address and it streams their sky channels to your internet where ever you are...
you can then watch through your pc....

info available on the slingbox web site

this is correct to the best of my knowledge, sorry if we have anything incorrect!

anymore info on this subject would be great,

Sounds a great idea but probably wouldn't work for us as we have 2 teenagers to manage to use up their download quota for the month early so we end up on dial up speed for at least 3 days before the new quota starts - oh unlimited where art thou? :lol: (trying to persuade OH to move from iiNet to TPG but not having much luck at the moment plus no.1 son loves the freezone iiNet offers).

Hi,

Just asked OH and he said that 'streaming' is a style of download and it will depend on how your download quota is calculated...sadly for us it would eat away at our quota..... darn it!

Dolly

PS have taken onboard the rope suggestion :lol:
