Foxtel & Satellite TV

We intend to get Satellite TV installed in our caravan and as we still have a few months left on our Foxtel contract was wondering if we will be able to take that as well. We use cable, not satellite, at home with the Foxtel IQ box (which I love) but not sure if a different box is needed to be used with satellite rather than cable.

Hope someone can shed some light.

The Foxtel cable card is not compatable with the satellite system. I've had the same problem & Foxtel have not been prepared to come to the party in providing a satellite card for a caravanner on the move even if you have cable at home.
