Greetings fellow geeks,

My name is Todd Saalman and am currently living in Los Angeles with my Kiwi wife, Yvonne. I write corporate software, websites and ride my bike as much as possible.

Our townhouse's Body Corporate in Wellington is changing some rules about external antennae (including satellite dishes) on our building, removing their allowance, actually. I'd be rather opposed to this if there are no alternate options and feel concerned about what kind of high-speed, high definition access is available via cable, hoping one of you may have some knowledge of this.

I like to have satellite access to programming from around the world, which I currently can get here in the States: EU, China, India, US and Canada are all available, as well has high-speed internet access, high definition video channels and satellite radio channels. Does anyone know if that mix is available via cable in Wellington?

Much thanks. I wonder if this topic is worthy of a new forum, as well.

Hi Todd,

Yes, cable is available in Wellington.  Also cable Internet.

For a full channel lineup on Cable TV, go here:

For information on cable broadband plans, go here:

Wether you can be connected or not comes down to wether this is cable in the street your building is in.
Also most likely you'd need consent from the body corporate for the building etc.
