If you really only want to receive BBC channels then any digital satellite receiver (80-100€ with a dish at your local bricolage) will work as the BBC signals are no longer encrypted. Just point the dish at 28.2E. The BBC satellite signals from the Astra 2D satellite are now more tightly focussed on UK since this change so the signal may be poor in your region - see official Astra information at http://www.ses-astra.com/satellites/beam/beamByXpr.php?pos=2&sat=ASTRA+2D&xpr=41,+42,+43,+44,+45,+46,+47,+48,+49,+50,+51,+52,+53,+54,+55,+56http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html gives the settings you will need to put into the digital box for the various channels. It also shows all the other television and radio channels you can get on a non-Sky receiver - F (for Free) in the Video Encryption column.
