    Do UK TV's work in Oz?

    We have 3 TV's all digital with inbuilt Freeview, but will these work in Australia ? I'm not a tachnical person but I dont know if the different power supply, frequencies for transmission etc are compatable. For any one has moved would you recommend taking TV's with us, or sell and buy new ones.

    Film or TV Jobs

    Hi. I'm moving over to Australia for a year in October from the UK. I currently work in the Film industry, but would like to carry this work over in Aus. I'm wondering if anyone has any good site-links, or contacts that would be looking for an experienced 1st or 2nd Assistant Director? Thanks in advance. Ben
  3. Hi I'm looking to buy a 42-50" tv. I'm planning to use online TV e.g. FetchTV quite a bit. The dilemma is which brand is most suited and easy to watch online telly in Oz. Any answers would be much appreciated.

One car is a 1997 Mitsubishi Mirage, dented but mechanically sound with only 105,000km -$2000 ono The other is my beautiful 1993 Mk1 VWW Golf Cabriolet (I'll miss this one) -$2500 ono We are based in Sydney. All is good quality & in good condition. ​Please pm email me for more information about any of the things listed
  5. Sorry to be a bore on this subject BUT............as title says.........Can we get anything like stream TV etc so that we can watch Strictly Come Dancing OR Dancing On Ice? I don't watch much TV at all but these are the only programmes that I may be missing in the grand scheme of things! To be honest TV is not top of my "to do" list whilst in OZ but would be nice once in a while! Any suggestions much appreciated! Oh! AND I missed the rest of "I'd Do Anything"...............Can you tell I like Musical Theatre and Dancing:yes:

    Guilty Pleasures

    I am trapped at home this week while tradesman do some work on the house and have found myself watching the Bold and Beautiful on TV each afternoon. I can feel my brain cells dying as I watch it and yet every afternoon at 4:30pm I sneak upstairs where nobody will see me and pop it on. What’s your guilty pleasure?
  8. I don't know if this has been posted before but thought I would mention it as there seems to be a lot of posts on this and other forums about why we can't watch UK telly here in OZ well I won't get too techie on the matter it all has to do with licenses and television rights so unless you pay for a VPN, Hide your i.p. service or a member of the box etc..It just can't be done for free and it costs money in the long run. You do not need to be technically minded to set this up and can be watching your favourite programmes in under 5 minutes, you will not need to set up a UK proxie server and all the software you need is 100% virus free and best of all legal. Now the downside it will only work for ITV 1,2,3 and 4 so you can catch up with yesterday's Corrie, Emmerdale or Britains Got Talent (well some Talent). But if you are looking for a hack for the BBC iplayer or Channel 4 then sorry this is not for you, but I am working on it. I have used this method for well over 6 months and it works like a dream on my computer and thought maybe it is time to share it with all fellow PIO members. I wont clog up this post on how to do it, you can get all the info from my website, you will find all the links needed to get the software and a handy step by step guide on how to set it all up. If you follow my instructions correctly it will work for you and all your ITV programmes will then be free if you are having problems then use the conact us link on my website and I'l try to help you further, Enjoy... Tim, If you feel this is helpful in anyway you may want to add a sticky to it for future PIO's perhaps ?
  9. Returning to UK next year, will our flat screen TV's work there or should we buy new when we get back?
  10. We are packing up our goods to ship to oz. Wondering if we should take our LCD tele, just buy one out there. Any thoughts, would uk tv work in oz ?

    Television Invention..

    Good or Bad. TV is becoming a part of every family. For some, television has many benefits and some people claim that more and more bad things are happening to the world because of TV others say children are turning in to zombies glued to the screen 24 hours a day. I have to admit I spend all day looking at screens, computer, phone, iPad and then TV.

    Television storage unit

    I have a large television/storage unit for sale that doesn't fit in our new rental property so it must go. It's in dark wood and you can either store a tv (around 32 inches within the cabinet) or any size on top. Amble additional storage for dvds, music etc also. Currently in Melrose Park, Sydney collection is a must as its a fairly large and heavy piece of furniture. Photos available on requested and open to sensible offers. Please private message me

    TV's How Do You Convert Them?

    Hi, I have heard that you can get something to convert UK TV's to work in Oz as they work on a different system. Will they definitely not work if you just change the plug? If you need a converter, what do they cost? We are leaving our big TV here in the UK but are considering taking our two 19 inch flatscreens, is it worth it? Gayle

  19. Hi, My name is Lara and I work for the BBC. I am currently researching for a series called 'Wanted Down Under', which is broadcast on BBC1. I just thought I would write a thread to see if anyone was interested in getting involved. I am looking for some quite specific groups of people to have a chat to about their move to Adelaide, Australia. I am looking for Welsh families that have come here to start a new life. I am also looking for a British self-employed wall and floor tiler that has started their own business here in Adelaide. I would love to hear from anyone from these areas or who might know of someone as I have described. With thanks and hope to hear from you soon, Lara Bickerton Adelaide Fixer BBC - Wanted Down Under
