If you are using a sky digibox, it should find all Sky channels available plus FTA channels which have paid to be included on the EPG.

Use this link for non-Sky package channels http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.shtml

Use this link for Sky Package channels http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/skyuk.shtml

With regard to the positioner, if it is an independent unit, then you can use it with any receiver to receive satellites normally within 50 or 60 degrees to either side of Due South, but it will depend on the motor's limitations and the available line of sight.

The Sky digibox only has very limited potential for non-Sky viewing with limited channel storage, you may find it better to invest in a standard receiver for these other satellites.
