not sure if this is right forum for this, but none of the others seemed to fit either...

has anyone tried to receive Eurosport Asia-Pacific in NZ? i know it's available in AU and the satellite should be visible in NZ.

Googling, it seems that it's on AsiaSat 3S and Optus C1 (or D3), encrypted. It seems that one needs to subscribe to Foxtel or Austar to get it - which most likely isn't allowed if you're not in Australia, plus one would need a really huge dish to get the Australian Optus C1/D3 beams outside of Australia (if that's even possible).

yes, i did some googling some time ago too with one of my friends who's played plenty with satellite stuff in europe. he concluded that with 1.8 dish it'd be possible. maybe a bit bigger, but the beam should be capturable in at least north island. according to him encryption is just a hurdle, not a show stopper.

so i was wondering if someone has actually tried that? i would have already attempted something with my pal but neither one of us lives in a house where we can install any kit in that size...
