Default TV's in australia

I know there have been a lot of theads about whether or not to bring you TV from the UK,Well i have to say no do not bring it sell it in the UK and buy one in oz.Depending on how long it takes for your stuff to get to you you will have to rent on anyway so why not just buy a new one.We have just got all our stuff from the shoppers ant the TV is knackered and it is now going to be a long process going through the insurances if they will pay out that is.Most TV repair company's don't want anything to do with a UK TV or want to charge the earth to look at it one company want to charge $136 just to come out and look at it so as one repair man said to us should of sold it before we came out,And TV are cheaper here anyway compared to the UK so save yourself the hassle and sell it and get a new one here.

IMO it wouldn't be worth your while, unless you like American cop shows a whole lot. I love to watch Big Brother, but you can watch that in the UK anyhow.

LOL yep that makes sense. I don't know of any for tv, but there are some for radio stations.

This should give you Aussie news. I listened to a couple of Aussie stations before moving out here. I found it quite interesting.

HTH
