Received the following advice today in CamperSat newsletter:

Welcome to this edition of the Campersat update for Travellers & Remote Area Residents.
As Announced by Optus 25th August 2009

Commencing 25 August, viewers will notice changes to their ABC TV channel options. Aurora viewers will continue to receive the ABC TV channel applicable to their region but will no longer be able to receive ABC TV services from outside their region. When selecting these ABC TV channels an on screen scramble message will be displayed. This restriction is a requirement of a Court suppression order

(Ed: in relation to suppression of information concerning a case in progress).

What with this and the shennigans with Imparja, the "goldie" seems even more attractive!

Life's too short to drink bad wine.

Thanks Phil,
I gave up in disgust last week - all I could seem to get was TVSN - and that is hardly interesting.
I obviously didn't try the region I was in for ABC (and probably SBS).
It also seems that Seven has struck me off their lists from last year.

Coupled with not being able to use my Austar card as I used to it is getting somewhat frustrating!

Hi all
This Sat TV thing is a big joke in this country. What a shambles. Can't use home Optus card in caravan. Can't get free to air channels anywhere except Imparja and then no Ch10. Why do we pay $6000 for Oyster etc when there are so many restrictions and controls.
In Europe Sat is free once you buy access. Seems to me there should be a Govt. inquriy into to this but I am sure this will never happen while either Party is in Govt.

Too many vested interests trying to gain exclusive rights and there is the advertising issue, but that is another story!!!!

Cheers Jack

Take your Austar box with you in the van. Run 2 boxes. Purchase a multi-purpose card. Problem solved. If you have access to Foxtel satellite you can get Ten.
