Hi i just moved to Malaysia from NZ and want to watch tv channels from NZ. I have dreambox 500S and dish. Is it possible to tune to NZ satellite? NZ uses Optus.

Thanks for any info.

Doubtful. Optus D1 at 160 uses a spot beam for New Zealand that is fairly tight onto the islands, and Malaysia is a very long way from NZ.

The only other option is via broadband if you have it, using something like a slingbox.

Possibly. Only if the keys are available for the channels(s) you want to watch.

I also heard about that Turok. Seems that only malayan satellites are allowed to be aimed to but who cares ? I believe in such countries you can buy with money everything, even rights.

To the initial question:
In Malaysia you cannot get NZ Beams. Even in Eastern Australia they use huge dishes to get a part of them. So the slingbox would be the most comfortable solution if you have somebody in NZ with high upstream that can offer it to you.

If you are generally interested in satellite reception in SE Asia, i would recommend the following boards:
