Hi

I have a HD TV that can receive DVB-T and HD Freeview.

I may be moving from a HD-DVB-T area to a SD-DVB-S area.

I have obtained  a DVB-S set top box with an upscale HDMI output which looks like the best option available at present.

I am wondering if HD Freeview is available via broadband internet in NZ?
The area I am moving to has VDSL2 available already.

I see that some Freeview on demand is available, but would like live HD Freeview via broadband.

Anyone with any knowledge in this area?

Thanks

Cheers

Gordon

My first ever network connection was a 1MHz AM crystal(OA91) radio receiver.

Probably not practical without UFB and you'd need an unlimited massive monthly data cap.
Just get MySky with HD ticket instead.

Do you even need the HD ticket to get 1,2 and 3 in HD?
