I'm assuming you mean InterNATIOnal not internal.

 

Only with a non standard decoder and small re-alignment or offset LNB holder. And not that many options to be had that are FTA

D2 mainly without moving. Or some chinese of Intelisat.

I have D1, D2 and Intelsat19 all working well off a 80cm dish pointed at D1. I think a lot of other people have also done the same. I'm not sure how well this would work with the smaller standard Sky dishes, and it might vary a little with location, but I have perfect reception using offset LNBs. D2 has mostly religious and foreign language stuff. I only use it these days for the Dutch BVN channel. RT is also on D2. Intelsat 19 has some English-language news channels, like the French one and Euronews. D1 has all the NZ Freeview stuff. That is about it. These days people who want to broaden their horizons generally look to the Internet. If I didn't already have satellite set up, I wouldn't bother.
