Hi all,

Does anyone know what satellite the last Tua fight feed was on?
I know it possibly won't be on again this next bout on March 31st, but would like to know what satellite to blind scan....

Cheers.

I take it from your original post that it was possible to watch the Tua / Cameron fight via the sat back feed and avoiding PPV fees?

Yup. That's the nature of using satellites to distribute video around the world. Temporary feeds are established to send this to Australia etc and often they are unencrypted. All you need is a suitable dish for the satellite, a dish that can blind scan, and the time/motivation to go looking for it.

I heard this was the case with the Tua fight but can't find the page I read it on now, but yeah I was pretty yanked to hear it may have been possible.

Now and then there are fights uplinked via Ku band from Australia, but i haven't ever seen any out of New Zealand. Quite often now, the fights on Main Event will now be encrypted.

A lot of the fights in New Zealand are uplinked via fibre or microwave uplinks. Now and then the fight will be uplinked out of New Zealand via C-band. I think the Tua fight was on Intelsat 5, but I can't quite remember.
