Watch on your mobile device, computer or connected TV app

If you are overseas and have suitable internet connectivity, you can access a growing line-up of 40+ channels including HD.

You can watch live or on demand to suit your timezone and location, on desktop or mobile/tablet app using your Defence Gateway ID, and now also via Apple TV, Fire TV Stick and Roku connected tv devices.


Watch in remote disconnected locations

We can reach remote locations and ships at sea to provide media and entertainment with limited or no internet. We do this via satellite and MiPlayer in special situations. 

Where a MiPlayer is present on location then communal viewing or access on a personal device is possible.

Wherever you are around the world, we'll do our best to get you a great selection of entertainment, accessible in a way that suits you.
