Can anyone confirm for sure whether channels such as 7 Central, Imparja, ABC, Aurora Tuning Info or SBS can be received in New Zealand?

I am aware some of these are encrypted and won't be viewable here, I am just interested whether anyone has been able to receive them here in NZ.  Also I understand most are on the Aus beam, except a few on the Aus/NZ beams of Optus D1, B3 and C1.

7 Central and SBS are available in NZ with the appropiate IRDETO STB/CAM module and Aurora card.

thanks sbiddle, thought that was the case. You got any idea how the signal strength is on a standard Sky dish?

SS is ok on a 65 cm dish,but if you intend to use it to look at D1 & C1 together,I would suggest an 85 cm dish

a 2.5m solid dish will get you most of the rest of the transponders, but there are some issues with the verticals because of the NZ beam being so much stronger it messes up the sensitivity of the lnb to the other carriers.
