Hey Guys,

Have searched the forums but can't seem to find too much on this subject. We have been renting this house for 2 years now and the LNB has gone faulty. I have contacted the landlord and they reckon the dish is owned by SKYTV. The dish looks like its been there for a very long time. They said its our responsibility to replace the LNB as the owner does not own the dish.

In my view the dish was supplied with the house when we arrived and nothing was mentioned that skytv owned it. I have found this clause here http://www.dbh.govt.nz/digital-television-facilities and it states - Where a landlord has installed a property with the equipment necessary to receive digital television, the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 places an obligation on a landlord to repair and maintain that equipment. 

I sent them a nice email saying in goodfaith they should replace it and they have which is awesome. 

I am wondering wher do we legally stand on thsi subject? and if they didn't replace it could we go to skytv and ask them to replace the LNB even though we don't have sky? I know that they probably wouldn't lol

Any comments would be appreciated.

"Hi Sky, I have one of your dishes but don't pay you any money to use it, can you please pay a technician to come to my place and repair it for free!"

Seems legit.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...
