sky tV......

Anyone in the UK who has multiroom can help you,

2 ways to do it but both require watching it over the internet:

Option one: Use Slingbox, google it and it will explain things, you cannot buy them in Singapore but as you need it in the UK, that doesnt matter,
Look at the Slingbox website and reviews on amazon uk

Option two: You need to use a VPN connection to get a UK IP address on your computer and then you can stream over the internet, you can get BBC IPLAYER , ITV IPLAYER and also log onto sky using someones account in the UK.

Best of Luck

Oliver

i think they're talking about uk.

if you want horse racing, wouldn't the internet suffice? no results on TAB's website?

you wanna know how you can watch australian horse racing?

you can go to the singapore turf club and find out which horses on the track are from australia.

you can open a tab account like you mentioned because getting results is not enough.

you can fly to australia and find the closest tv with horse racing (inside a tab?) and watch it.

hopefully i've sorted your options from cheap to expensive so you needn't think too hard.

YUP results aren't enough, I don't gamble but i am ex rider so i like to watch my freiends horses going around and to keep in touch with the industry. You can only watch a hand full of aussie races here, but there are many tracks all over every day and nite racing. But your narrow mind wouldn't understand because you probably sit on your ass all day looking at a computer gettin fatter and fatter lol

ooooh! that's what it is? i thought it was coz i had a job that doesn't let me get out much.

and FYI, my suggestions were all valid, and may i recommend you take the third option.

in case you aren't more acceptable than you already are, please share your lovely opinion with people you meet!

Personally, SkyTV is not worth putting THAT much effort into. ;)

Nah, not the wrong spot, it's justs that Rocky is trying to accumulate posts so as to disguise the fact that he's gonna be posting spam eventually. - moderator

Have you ever been able to browse Vodafone live on your iphone?

Iphone 3G and iphone 3Gs are not Vodafone live approved devices you can tell this as there is no Vodafone live branding on the iphone or the box it came in

Totally unrelated to the thread. You might have posted this in the wrong place.
