Hi, could someone help me with advice on how to organise sports channels in engligh (e.g. Fox, Star Sports etc)to be connected to an apartment in Goheyon. Also movie channels would be great.

You mean watching on the TV, or streaming from the internet (to the TV)?

There are around 6 sports channels on Skylife. A couple of them are in English (Star Sports and Eurosport). The rest are Korean channels, but do show a selection of sports events from Europe (EPL, golf etc.). Not so sure about what sports they show from the states, but possible they might have baseball, american football etc. if theres a big event on.

My husband is a huuuge sports fan..he mostly streams from the internet for live cricket and you would be wise to
set up apple tv...cheaper than foxtel and a huge variety, but do your homework before setting it up as there are a few steps to do prior (hiding vn number etc)...I got my apple tv from hay st mall Perth for around $100..worth every penny. ..good luck with everything. .

Thanks for the info Cheryl...I never thought about apple TV before!

Now that I am here I see there is some limited sports access in english - Star Sports and Eurosport, though I'm not sure if these will have MotoGP and SBK racing as it's out of season now. Also keen to access the NRL. I'll check out the Apple TV.

Thanks for the tip

If you have not left your home base yet, you can get a slingbox to stay at your home (or friends home) which, when connected to the internet will stream the television from your home country. We've just set it up in our home in Australia ready for our arrival in Geoje this week. We will the use apple TV to see it on the TV screen. We will effectively have Australian TV and the ability to tape shows. We only found out about this option at the last minute but have managed to get it in just before we leave. Hope this helps.

Is there a reason you chose Slingbox? All the reviews say Roku is the best unless you want to access a lot of iTunes material.

I think you are confusing the Slingbox with the apple TV.

Personally the better streaming devices are the Apple TV and the Chrome TV due to the larger library of content available.

Just keep in mind Chrome TV is a much newer device so there isn't as many features just yet as the Apple TV.

As for the Slingbox, it's great for accessing all your channels back home live or recorded, just keep in mind all it does is stream your satellite or cable box over the net.
From my experience with the slingbox they are great devices for streaming but they do have their flaws.

Regards,

Chris.
