"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…"

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

"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 "

"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."

"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"

Hi Rob

Subscription is to Filmon. http://www.filmon.com/

I've only used their free service so far. ITV worked well for the RWC. Free service is SD only and limited recording time but could be useful for a subscription at some time when I ditch Sky. Haven't seen any schedules for Olympics yet but will have a search thru the program guides.
