is Australia Network unencrypted?

I'm surprised that Sky won't get pissy about this, as Australia Network covers S14.  Guess they might just black it out for us.

What are C and Ku bands?.  How does this relate to the Optus freeview feed etc.
I'm looking at these stations of Intelsat 5 and realise it's going to need a 1.2m or more dish, but just not sure how more difficult it is to setup etc.
