hi, i am a complete novice to this and was hoping if somebody could shed some light on to the subject for me. i recently saw a digital satellite kit on maplins website which contains a 80cm dish, receiver and a universal lnb. it says it can receive over 4000 free to air channels, will any of these channels be the same as what i get on freeview as the receiver says dvb ie. e4 and itv2? once connected how many channels will there be and how many of them are english language? it seems a lot of people have satellite dishes, but if the channels arent english language then whats the point? am i missing out on something, i have heard you can get cards for the boxes, what do they do? any info on receivable channels would be good. please explain.
