The premiere card will work anywhere inside the coverage area with an appropriate receiver. The UAE is probably too far east to get coverage though.

Yes if you can a) receive the satellite (have a big enough dish) and b) get hold of a card.

What is your dish size?
I believe that many of the Sky Germany channels can be received with a relatively not so big dish (1.2-1.6m) in the UAE.

Check the channels under the Wide beam from 1M.
Why don't you point your dish (whatever size it is) to Astra 19.2E and see which channels you can see after scanning?
You can then worry about how to get a subscription card.

Why would you want to get the sky Germany? If you are after German programs, then there are a dungload of FTA channels available. Their movie channels are showing the same movies as all the other major packages, the mature content is the same (well all mature content is the same anyway :) so the only thing they got is the German football...

Turok,
Take a look at the Wide beam footprint from Lyngsat.
It should be possible to receive some channels, even in the UAE.
