See here for frequencies and polarisation http://www.lyngsat.com/hotbird.html

You need a DVB PowerVu receiver plus conditional access card, obtainable only from official AFN sources.  I believe the program content is not licenced to be available for free-to-air (FTA) reception.

Best regards, Eric.
