You might get away with a 2.4M solid.

as for Foxtel here, you're in with a shot for stuff off C1, but half of Foxtel has migrated to D3, which seems to have a much tighter spot beam (from what i've read)

I haven't heard of anyone getting the AU beam from D3 in NZ, but C1 AU beam is possible with a 2.4.

At that size it would be. I haven't seen any KU mesh setups before and I don't think anyone in NZ sells them like that.
