i was recently reading an article in the herald which stated you could receive australian channels via the D1 satellite. i have since looked around and only found two working transponders providing me with what comes up as IPU_9_Cricket and a TEST stream.  can anyone shed any more light on this as i would much like to find out if other channels are possible?

Not true.. some of the D1 signals are on AU only beams which you won't get in NZ.

Also since the article the main channel, southern cross central, has changed their setup

The aussie channels are spotted on australia as the lyngsat points out, with the equiv of some mainstream channels being encrypted anyways. 

This is the coverage map for D1:

Basically in practical terms means you need a big KU band dish to get them.  Say 3m, at least that is what I remember people were saying when it was B1.

Some people get a few Aus channels via C1, but you need the correct aurora card these days I think (and they don't just give them out to people overseas :) ).

I beleive that if you have a big enough dish you can pick them up, as mentioned above?

Hi Guys

Currently available on DI is all Sky channels, and all Freeview channels.
Also right now is Imparja(Ch 9 Aust) and NITV(Aborigine TV) all available but could be gone tomorrow.

A Freeview box will not pick up these channels.

I am receiving on a 45cm dish in Auckland. I have tested this dish for the same channels in Taupo and Taranaki and works just
fine.

I am a professional installer.

Cheers
