Satellite feeds are the 'raw' unedited pictures sent to broadcasters. These can sometime be received on home equipment.

Aes (Advanced Encryption Standard) and Softcam (Software Conditional Access Module) k*ys are the same just different names.

They are as Gameboy says, the raw transmissions from news gatherers and outside broadcasts, they are uplinked to a particular satellite in their unedited form for mixing by the broadcaster. They are normally transmitted as single channels taking up the whole of a transponder/frequency.

If you look down in the Transponders and Channels section, there is a thread by Satdude, which gives you some frequencies on the different satellites to check out.
