hello

going to move over, and like to purchase before here in Germany a satelite system. well, we have Astra here, but I wonder if our LNBs and antennas accept other satelites around Oz.

Could you tell what is avaible in Australia ?
Maybe you have an idea which would be a good small removable system for a small slideon camper

Hi Chris
If you look at the site below, you should find all the info you need.
The main two satellites that are used are: Opus C1 (for remote tv and pay tv) and pas 8 (for pay tv).

The site below shows you some cheap systems:

If you want 'main stream' Pay TV, Foxtel is one of the main players. They will want to install their own equipment. Foxtel

re: Foxtel.

Foxtel will most likely refuse to install a dish on anything mobile as their systems are designed for houses etc. I have installed on 'permanant' vans, but these were definately permanant. Foxtels data base is address based. The usual way round is to get it installed at home, then get another mobile dish arrangement and just take the decoder from home when you travel. Be aware that you will not get a service call if your address is melbourne and you happen to be in a van park at allice springs. All you will get is a 'sorry we missed you' card at your house. Hope this helps.

hey mates, thank you so much !
Neil - that will do it, nice satelite page
Kevin - good forum

prices seem acceptable, some electronics are quite expensive compare to here.
There is a USB stick receiver I am interested in. Have no feedback for compatibility, yet.
