Is there anywhere I can find a definitive list of English speaking channels on the Astra 19.2E satellites?

I was going to set up a 3-LNB fixed-dish system (Astra 28.8E, Astra 19.2E and Hotbird 13E) but am now wondering if it is worth bothering with 19.2E at all as I don't speak any language other than English. What decent English speaking channels are broadcast on 19.2E?

Thanks,
Gary

I am not sure if you can setup 3-LNB dish system easily.
You may have to use a motor or 2 Dish system
I will leave to the experts to give you the best answer.

To find out about English speaking channels, you can open the Lyngsat pages for all the 3 satellites mentioned and look for channels that show English audio.
Remember to click also on "P" for package to see the full package channels list, including encrypted channels. Ex. TPS

There are foreign packages that have channels with dual sound tracks and you can easily select English on your remote, if it is available at the broadcast time (Films, series)

If you are looking for British channels only, then Lyngsat will also show these. Ex. BBC Prime on Hot Bird

If you ask me, I would definitely point to Astra 19.2 because of what I have written above.
In fact I am dying to do this right now, but I need at least 2m dish on the roof.

Hi,
This is a very common setup in the UK, there are plenty of examples of it on this forum. Four is even possible at a push.
