Keen to watch the Olympics on PRIME but don’t have sky…

Can I use my old sky dish (without a sky subscription) with my old freeview box?

 

The old freeview box was used two years ago (different house - it was connected to an UHF aerial), but the current house does not have an aerial.

If you want to connect to a satellite dish you will need a satellite box. A UHF box need to be connected to a UHF aerial. The 2 technologies are completely different

Thanks very much - I'll need to look at a new box or getting an aerial fitted then - I'll look into the costs of this and try to find out which is the best way to go.

How do you watch TV at the moment?

All via internet: NETFLIX and tv3 and tvnzondemand.

The Olympics is on Sky and PRIME and so we thought we'd try and get set up to watch PRIME - I think PRIME does not have an online platform

Ah! I see. You could possibly look for an online streaming service with live coverage. Bound to be many. ITV on Filmon.com carried the RWC live. Only SD on their free service but HD and recordable on their subscription service.

thanks - good to know that streams can be recordable. (didn't know that). Is the subscription with ITV or Filmon?

I'm keen to find a good highlights package, and thought PRIME may be good to get a focus on NZ athletes, though not essential.
