I'm thinking of buying a WM AT&T fuze. And I wonder if I will be able to watch mobitv in NZ. Has anybody tried that here?I'm afraid mobitv is available to US user only.

I've had vodafone's Sky service in the past - it worked well, although you had to have 3G coverage to get it (I would watch the news on the way home on the train).

My biggest concern would be the cost of data for such a service - streaming video isn't a low bandwidth application - if data was no worry, then I would suspect you could sign up - a quick look on the website for mobitv didn't seem to say US only.

Just my thoughts.

MobiTV doestn't work outside the U.S.

Also, the version that's on AT&T devices works only on those devices because it charges the monthly fee to an AT&T account - which you won't have here.

You could try SPB TV, although they don't have the same number of TV channels.
