Does this Skylink TV thing work in New Zealand

It looks so good but does in work here
Sounds good at $35.00 US but can we access all channels that we get on Sky
Would be good to dump Sky as they are getting too dear

Hmmm can't see how an antenna is going to Decode the sky signal. That's what a sky decoder does. Without that sky decoder box you might be able to get the signal sure but I can't see how you'd be able to watch it.

It probably receives the FTA channels ok, but I cannot see how i.t receives any of the channels that are broadcast via sattelite, such as SKY TV.

Getting too dear? They recently pretty much halved all their prices

Didn't make a cent of difference to us as we get the Sky Basic and preferred to leave the channel selections available as they were. Zero change in pricing. Those cut prices certainly don't suit everyone as if you want the cheapest deals you may lose several channels you don't want to lose.

OH and Edit to my first post. Yeah no antenna is going to pick up the satellite signal eh. I forgot they don't do uhf sky now-a-days.

We cancelled ours when this price changed happened as it didn't change our pricing, then after 6 weeks they rang me and offered basic and the sports for $30 p/m, still didn't tempt us back as we now are use to not having it.

its not halving all their prices when you have to give up some channels to get
it.

I use a NetGear wifi adaptor with ours. It drops out sometimes and seems to need reconnecting if the wifi router drops out for any reason, but it does mainly work. That is if the Sky Link adaptor is what you're talking about. If it is the Skylink antenna, then no, no Sky just Freeview channels.
