[updated:LAST EDITED ON 28-Apr-02 AT 09:24 PM (GMT)]Wow, big question :) Deserves a big answer as well, but you've left the question pretty open and there are lots of routes to a similar end.

If you have a PC and can get hold of a Hauppauge DVBs card from PC world at £130ish on special, then with some free software and a dish pointing at a pair of satellites will get you loads of football. Have a look in the relevant forum for more info, you can do a search for "Multidec".

Have a look through the Cams and decoders section and you will soon find out what one does and also that they are not a cheap item, also that the encryptions are being upgraded, so it could be a lean time for free satellite for a while. There are a wealth of receivers around and some can be flash programmed to give multi-encryption reception, but the more popular ones are more expensive.
