Not with a digital decoder. Only if you hire a UHF decoder as well. There are other nefarious ways of getting it using a computer, but I don't think this is the place to get into it here.

It's really a moot point, as they are slowly shutting down the UHF signal nationwide.

Yes JohnstonDJ, that's right. They've been progressively changing the last of their UHF subscribers over to Satellite for the last six months. I understand that the "switch off" day is 31st January 2010.
