    From what I can gather it can take around 2 months, but others may be able to tell you about their personal experiences. There can sometimes be paperwork hassles at the NZ end that might hold things up.

    Question
    I am moving from the UK, can I bring my SKY box over to NZ?

    Answer
    The British SKY box is not compatible with the NZ SKY service and cannot be used here.

    Also just a few things to bear in mind: your television will need to be PAL compatible and you will only be able to view the free to air channels through our SKY digital service as we transmit on a different frequency in New Zealand; you vcr will only play pre recorded tapes for the same reason and any DVD's will need to be multi zones as we are classed as zone 4.


    This also confirms it won't work.

    Default Lucky brother!

    Hi Mother Bear

    Thanks for reply

    I think my brother may be happier than I as he has his eye on my 47'' TV & SKY HD box

    Regards

    Shippers usually tell you a container will take 8-10 weeks to get from UK to NZ.

    Ours was more like 12 weeks, or 13 (was a year ago so have forgotten!) ...
