:-Welcome1 to the forum james_london
Although Likvid was quicker to respond to me he is correct, in the UK we can only see satellites from approx 60 East to 60 West as that is the extent of the Clarke curve that can be viewed from the UK.

So does that mean in Australia you can also not get European TV?

That's so annoying! Don't they carry those channels on more than one satellite... I want to get ABC and SBS in England. :(

I would guess that there would not be sufficient demand for more than the odd channel from either continent, also satellite transponder space is very expensive .

:D G day mate. I think its fair dinkum and the providers should be clobbered. Nothing better than a few Fosters and a Shelia giving us a show.

Oh dear TJ....that sounds horrible....

Anyway, having had the pleasure of watching Australian TV for 9 month: Stick to UK TV, James....Advertising is not half as obnoctious and I reckon Home and Away is still showing ;) and not to forget Kath and Kim was showing some weeks ago...

Downunder TV have plans to launch on Sky, but thats likely to be the nearest we get to Aussie tv here in Europe.

(No I dont know what their programming line up is likely to be!)

Hi there,
If you can read first and pass on please the fact of thematter is that the only way we here in the UK can get hold of Aussie televisionLive is if you have the ability decrypt the signal replayed here, from theMilitary satellites used by the commonwealth government, so Ten, 7, SBS and soon are available to Australian Embassy and any of their visiting Warships. The Signals are otherwise not availablebecause of Copy write, Business and political contractual obligations, so theAnswer is yes you can get them, but even with my set up, unless I have the twoway authentication protocols, I can not get them, I can watch East coast feedsfrom the States as I have a relative in the “DOD” plus dual citizenship with specialpermission from the US State department, as I have done some work for them.

6 Years, 2.5 months, has to be a record necropost..... :-worship

(I think the topic of receiving aussie TV can these days be solved with a Slingbox in Oz, but, I think the O/P has long since abandoned their quest)

Yes indeed.

Interesting solution, but probably best to close this venerable Thread.
