Hi

A friend returning to NZ is wondering if his sky UK box will work here - http://www.sky.com/portal/site/skycom/skyproducts/skytv/skyplus

Any ideas welcome.

My understanding is that no, Sky UK boxes will not work at all here.

It's only use will be as a doorstop.

Sell it before you come back.

No, even the adding other services will not work here because it needs to see its home transponder to actually let you do anything.

Friend has 3 of them hoping to be able to use them - not to be the case sadly.
