I didn't dig around enough to see if it would work on that side of the world or not, but they may have options locally as well.
We saw a guy toting one of these in to the Boundary Waters. About the size of a portable seat cushion and they have come down in cost a lot. You gotta remember that DirecTV's satellites are in a geo-synchronous orbit over the US, and they spot transmit. If you in the southern hemisphere or in Europe there is a good chance this will not work.
I also have one(slingbox) and use it during tailgating. I kind of laugh at the people out adjusting their satellites while I'm watching using my directv receiver from home. The one downside is that you're not getting HD but on the 27" that we use it's not important. I've got the cheapest version of the slingbox. I've heard that the picture has a lot more to do with your speed than the actual slingbox itself.
We'll see how it performs this year now that I've switched from DSL to Mediacom. The download from Mediacom is much faster than my DSL but the upload isn't.
