A Sky receiver can be used but only broadcasts using 22000 & 27500 symbol rates can be viewed under the add channels menu :)

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

The only Sky on Hotbird is Sky Italia you will not get Sky UK from there, a sky UK card is only for use on 28.2 East. Also you cannot use a Sky UK card to watch Sky Italia
