Was more looking for what channels it can pick up, e.g. can it get anything from europe or the states?

In a simple answer, no.

Satellite dishes can only pick up satellies that cover this part of the world, if you look at www.apsattv.com you'll see a good list of such satellites and the channels they carry.

Remember most pay tv channels are encrypted so even if you can pick them up you won't be able to view them without appropiate hardware and/or card.

You will certainly be able to receive Intelsat 5, BBC Asia and Australia Network (ABC Australia) plus many feeds from USA with this dish, mostly in the morning NZ Time. In order to receive this satellite and other free to air services you will need a satellite receiver. Lyngsat.com is also an excellent repository of what is available to us in NZ
