    I'm hoping to move to new zealand within the next 12 months or so. Does anybody know whether the UK Sky HD box will work in that country?

    It should not work with the current operating system, as it is designed to receive signals from the Astra Satelite whose footprint of where it can be received extends to Western Europe and in some cases northern Africa.

    Maybe the box OS could be changed to a Satallite provider in NZ though which would then give it some functional use?
