michaelt: The exception is the Aurora network (Australian Free-to-Air channels broadcast via satellite), which for some reason is available here as well (if you have the card).
Beaker: Optus C1 + Optus Aurora Card activated u will get 3x SBS channels & Channel 7, with a DVB-S2 receiver you will get Nine Digital, Go & Gem off D1 FTA.
gareth41: Aurora is being pulled soon, a new service called VAST is already out to replace it. VAST uses ir2 and the cards are all locked to receivers, plus its all on the aust beam so you need a 3+ metre dish to get a signal lock in NZ.
Beaker: When you say soon, its actually going to cease end of 2013, so looking at least 30 months yet ;) but that's OK because the world will end 21 Dec 2012 anyways.. LOL
