Hi capone

Welcome to the board. The information that you refer to is on a satellite located at 7degrees west. your $k* equipment, I presume, is looking at a satellite located at 28degrees east.
Arabic fta means that it is free to air, not scrambled.
The horizontal channels from this satellite are very weak, I can only receive the vertical channels in near clear sky conditions with a 98cm dish and I am close to the east coast.
If you are in the UK and swing your dish round you would not receive a signal.
You will learn about VPID/SID/APID etc if you decide to branch out and get a larger, steerable antenna and another receiver.
