I saw a post here a few days ago that asked if anyone knew how to get hockey broadcasts in australia. I just read this on the HNIC webssite
How can I pick up your feed if I live as far away as Australia or even New York City?
Our off-air signal is distributed on the ANIK F2 satellite, which is a scrambled digital signal. Anyone wishing to see the CBC signal would need to buy a Tandberg Alteia decoder which will run you about $5,000.00US. Furthermore, the receiver's dish must be within the footprint of the satellite's signal. The footprint will vary, but generally the ANIK F2 is limited to North America.
