I've got a Sky card with Setanta in my Dreambox DB7020, registered to a London address in my Dreambox DB7020.

Because of broadcasting rights, some matches are only available if one has a address in Ireland, but I really want to watch Setanta Cup on Setanta Ireland tonight.

Is there any way around this?

Afraid not - an Irish address is what you need, and I doubt they'll change the subscription immediately if you phone up just before the match and say you have moved to Ireland.

Find a local Irish bar...or are there none?

Ack, I'll miss today's match then. But how does this work? Can I "move" to Ireland, and then I'll get the matches on Setanta Ireland? Do I lose access to anything?

If you "move" all your regional defaults will change too. You will get RTE instead of BBC & ITV on 101-104. You will certaily lose C5 as its not mapped on the Irish epg.

Think it through carefully before you try it....

Or cancel your UK sub, the card will stay active for ITV/Ch4/5, then get an Irish one and add the sport stuff you want, switch the cards around as you need them.

You will, however, need a real Irish address, at which someone will receive your new card and post it on to you.

Just one last question, does it matter if I "move" to Northern Ireland or Republic of Ireland? Trying to find a suitable victim ;)
