If its an original BSB plate, it won't be of any real use. You can get a second hand 60cm conventional dish for a couple of quid and team that up with your car boot analogue receiver you should be up for Eurosport and a lot of German language stations.

The majority of the British football is Digital and encrypted, see the thread in Chit Chat or transponders and channels.
