this channel you require is not on the satellite that your sky dish is pointed at. sky dish is pointed at 28 degrees east of south.

You are correct that 13east is the sat you want, however a sky mini dish may not be sufficient. You will need a bigger dish, minimum of 60cm.

Also you will need a receiver, not a sky receiver but a versatile DVB (digital) receiver available from 50 quid

No, they only deal with the Sky package, you will need a second dish for Hotbird and a separate receiver.

I can get it on a minidish down here in Kent.
But you're right a larger dish would be better for all weathers.

and Maplins are doing a couple of FTA receivers for £30 right now. The beta is very easy to use,
and would do for just one channel.
