    There are a lot of FTA channels, the vast majority don't have English audio, but some do, occasionally, like ONE HD, on 19.2E.
    If you have a clear line of sight, you should get a lot of satellites, between 30W to 52E.
    You can check the FTA, Free To Air, channels on sites like lyngsat, kingofsat, etc

    What size dish, do you have, and your general location, e.g. North East England, as this will help us work out which satellites you can receive.

    You can get a lot of technical information starting from here: https://satbeams.com/channels
    Select a satellite then look at footprints does it covers your location, browse the channels, etc.
    Channels, programs to watch: nobody knows your preferences so you check them you.

    I will be fine tuning my dish tomorrow as the weather is awful today, when I had my old technomate motor installed I received lots of channels and sats but now it needs fine tuning,its been difficult as the manhattan motor I had spare is totally different the main shaft points up so I really need to check all the settings of the dish bracket and motor bracket, need to find some sites to show me exactly what to do to get it bang on
