    there prob is but it could get expensive paying for all those subscriptions! There's actually a bit FTA (free to air). Have you looked into this and is your dish motorised?

    You have to be multilingual to enjoy most of it....there is some okay fta on cband - Eurosport is one of a handful of sport channels. They probably have what most would describe as second tier sports but I usually find something half interesting to have on the tv out in the backyard bar.

    you can blind scan for feeds to sport. There are usually some running every week. What sports are you in to?

    Do a blindscan and you might catch a game.

    There are 2 problems getting a Smart Card to view those channels, one is getting a card that is pirated and the other is many overseas companies wont or cant allow their programs to be viewed in Australia.
    Obviously with the pirated card you run the risk of being ripped off by the seller or the card being disabled by the Broadcaster and there is also the risk of you being fined or (unlikely) being imprisoned for having the card.

    Its unfortunate but for either legal or commercial reasons, the Broadcaster wont allow the use of their cards in Australia but sometimes lateral thinking has found ways around that.
    I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!

    I think it's through SkyNZ.

    You'll need the decoder and subscription to go with the card though.
