No, I don't think you can. Only analogue from there.

For freeview it is either waiatarua or pine hill.

Sky Tower in Infill, which means short range low power compared with Waiatatua.




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat APAC as a Technology Evangelist and Portfolio Architect. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

All DTT transmission sites carry TV1/2/3 with their respective HD streams, this includes the Sky Tower Infill, so if you can/are capable of receiveing the DTT muxs from Sky Tower then yes you will be able to get the HD streams on it.

Note the Infill Txs are between either 10th or 100th the base power of the Main Txs such as Waitarua.

We are approx 2/3 kms in a straight line from Sky Tower and we see the full tower to the top easy from all windows, do you know what UHF antenna do we buy for the HD?

If you already have a UHF Antenna use that.

If you don't, others have had success with this
