AFAIK = "as far as I know"

Those channels are certainly not free channels. Either your stb has been patched so its capable of opening them, or they have been temporairily unencrypted

from the coverage maps it seems Hotbird is not receivable in India. Can you Please infom what part of India you are in and your dish size.

They are visible in parts of India - but you need a pretty big dish and you dont get all the beams.

Thanks.
I am from Sri Lanka now employed in UAE. I thought of receiving Hotbird in SL before but found We are out of the footprint. Did some research on the net after I saw your post and found that some people in India especially in Northern and NorthWestern part of India are receiving hotbird with big dishes.
