Thanks, but I'm looking for the sports options.
Ah... My husband is pretty happy with 117 or whatever that new(ish) sports channel is here on Starhub. 121? I don't know, I generally put my iPod on when he watches football.

also find out from your US ISP what is the maximum upload speed as slingbox quality depends on the upload speed.

Slingbox / Satelite TV

Post by olivergm » Wed, 02 Jun 2010 12:25 pm


Im also interested in getting DSTV. The only sport you can see in Singapore is football... DSTV has all the football, rugby, cricket etc etc.

Does anyone know if you can use Dream TV satelite in Singapore? Any other ideas on how to get DSTV?

The only way to get DSTV in Singapore is via the internet as privately owned satellite dishes in SG are illegal. So purchase a slingbox and negotiate with a relative / 2 in SA to pay their internet connection and DSTV charge and you're home free (not much more expensive than a starhub connection with MORE sport and MORE movie channels)

There is a guy in Malaysia who can connect you if you're that side of the border, but they only are getting 2 channels at the moment (I was jumping for joy when I saw the pub was showing supersport, but was disappointed when I found out that a 4m satellite dish was necessary (be difficult to hide that one!)
