does anyone know if I can get a dish installed by Austar without signing up for a plan? I’ve had a look on their site but can’t see anything and the shortest contracts seem to be 6 months. Tv satellite dish parts I just want the dish, no contract at my address.

Are you actually in an area that Austar normally provide the PayTV service?

I have no idea either.

Aha, so your plan is to rip them off illegally. Satellite tv providers uk You should have quit while you were ahead; that’s called fraud my friend: FRAUD. Cable and satellite tv alternatives It’s the same as stealing electricity by bypassing your meter.

If the OP wanted to pinch the folks’ Austar box and card and relocate it to the OP’s house … Online satellite tv reviews the folks would then be missing their 2nd box – why wouldn’t they just transfer the 2nd box to the OP’s address?

So either the OP was not aware of this ‘above board’ method or the OP is not actually after the Austar service and is incorrectly using the term ‘Austar dish’ to mean simply a satellite dish not used for Austar.

Watch satellite tv on computer free It’s open to interpretation unless this user says “I want to watch Austar at my house” using some dodgy manner. Satellite tv indian channels Either way the OP needs to chat with his/her installer to get advice on what is trying to be achieved, some people try to get FTA off of the C1 and D3 … Cable and satellite tv comparison who knows what the OP is hoping to do.

I typed ‘Austar Dish’ into Google and the top result had a chap in a forum asking “Any use for an old Austar Dish?”

a few results down and there is another that says “i have a austar dish that i was given and i have it set up to pick fta satellite”

It’s common for the terminology to be used this way, granted it may have been provided by Austar originally – either way it’s just a satellite dish. Satellite tv frequencies uk The OP could be up to anything and just didn’t know where to get a dish and set top box (or what they are called).

So I feel this is jumping the gun and lacking definitive evidence that the OP’s actual intention was in fact to ‘rip off’ Austar.

You must not copy the AUSTAR TV Service or any part of it or split, redirect, redistribute or otherwise offer or make available any AUSTAR TV Service to be viewed in any other place outside your Premises or move the Equipment from one outlet to another within your Premises, without our prior written approval.”

So get written approval by telling them you now want 1 box at one address and one at the other but under the same account.

and they must allow it as I found this note on the Austar page redirecting people in this situation of 2 locations on 1 account to phone support:

“**Customers with AUSTAR at more than one address may experience difficulty using the online Change of Option tool. Satellite dish installation guide uk Please call 132 432 and say ‘change options’ for assistance.”

If it was legal he wouldn’t be here asking advice on how to get Austar to install just the satelite. Satellite tv set top boxes australia I stand corrected on the legality of posessing the dish – I am surprised though because it means that as soon as your contract is up you can take it away and get Austar to install a new one – and I’m pretty sure that they don’t want to be installing $200 satelite dishes, which the customer isn’t paying for, that are being used for other activities

If it was legal he wouldn’t be here asking advice on how to get Austar to install just the satelite.

The way I read it is that the OP wants to use an existing 2nd box from their folks house in the house they live in rather than buying a 3rd box between them. Compare satellite tv providers in india Perhaps the user was unaware this could be done with the advise and support of Austar depending on their terms and conditions. Satellite tv frequencies From reading their terms and conditions they seem to have little issue with a customer owning a system at 2 different locations. Pc satellite tv software review If the 2nd box at the folks house is in use and being paid for, I see a person who is unsure about their options – not a person with ill intent to commit fraud.

I’m certain the dish installation and supply are factored in as a non-returnable item when they develop their packages. Satellite tv for pc elite edition crack It’s paid for, you can do what you want with it and i’m certain they wouldn’t care.

Wow I wasn’t aware of that option, I shall look into it. How much is a directv satellite dish The other dude can just bugger off and keep his ridiculous comments to himself. Satellite tv listings uk He sounds like he has shares in the company or something, seriously get over it…

Apparently transferring a second box to another house that does not fall under the same roofline of the house means a second account.

Well there you go, we have the answer now. Free to air tv channel guide I thought if you owned 2 houses and wanted a box in each you could have both properties under a single account – with the pricing being different than having 2 boxes in the same house of course.

Curious because this little blurb in the section about accounts.

“**Customers with AUSTAR at more than one address may experience difficulty using the online Change of Option tool. Watch arabic tv channels online free streaming Please call 132 432 and say ‘change options’ for assistance.

I must be making the wrong assumption or taking in a different context.

Very interesting, lets say rez125 has got his dish, if his folks have mystar HD will the second box still work anyway, being 2 blocks away.
