Intelsat 8 - FTA (All below are Ku band)
TV Plus, normally encrypted is FTA (they have been having technical issues for last week, as a result, all channels FTA) ENJOY
Pink Extra (Current playing in English is a US war movie, something about a US plane and pilots downed in enemy territory. Not sure what it is, but is quite good)
Atlas TV (Current movie in English has our Elle MacPherson in it... thinking possibly Sirens) - Hmmmm, Elle being naked..... yum
Another channel to save in your bouquet is normally FTA all the time:
MTV China (both C & Ku)
They recently televised the EMA Awards, something that was only available in Australia via Fox/Aus. Here it's free.
Panglobal have channels that are FTA all the time. They are:
Are an of these channels Russian please
Non of these seem to show up in NZ. Only MacTV and ArirangTV
Same with those that you receive in NZ (AirangTV and MacTV), they are all on the Ku transponders with a foot print on NZ. So I doubt anyone here in OZ will be able to receive those.
But, happy to be corrected. I did receive airang once, can't remember whether it was Ku or C, but not anymore.
It would be best on checking the lyngsat site and clicking on each individual channel I have listed.
Apart from what LP mentioned, there is a FTA English Russian channel called Russia Today "RT" on D2 (Ku band).
RT is a news channel and works on a similar format to Aljazeera (C1) and Press TV (D2), all of which are Ku and FTA.
No the channel on AS5 I'm refering to is Perviy kanal Asia
