From Freeviewshop Fourm:

SBS HD and SBS One and SBS TWO are all currently broadcasting on OPTUS D1:



Just add the following TP to D1 and do a scan to watch them:
Freq: 12646MHz
Pol: Vertical
SR: 12600

For SBS HD you will need a HD Satellite receiver like the Hyundai AH-3110 or Ultraplus F-9000HD PVR.

Here is a screen shots of SBS HD:



Here is a screen shots of SBS ONE:




Some people are having issues at getting the channels though. But some people are able to confirm that they are there!!!!

I wonder how long these broadcasts will be for.

Also SBS HD is FTA broadcasting too (the first FTA channel in HD)

It's on vertical polarity, so if any other STB connected to the dish is on a Sky or Freeview channel, you'll get no lock.

you just need to do a manual search on 12646, vertical polarity, symbol rate 12600

STB = Set Top Box.
Means a separate decoder that sits on your TV and plugs into one of your TV's inputs.
Most LNB's, the piece on the end of the arm of a satellite dish on your roof, can only work with signals in one orientation. Freeview and Sky are both Horizontal polarity, where as the SBS channels are on Vertical Polarity. So you need to make sure that no other decoder box, STB, is using the LNB in Horizontal mode at the time.

The fact that it's on lyngsat, would that suggest it might be sticking around for a while? I mean lyngsat won't just publish a transient feed will they.

Are these free to air channels. As I work in the industry my employer tells me that these are scrambled channels  and I will need a card to view them. I have entered the frequency and get a signal from the transponder and the signal comes in on the STB  when I do a scan but does not store them.
Receiving all Freeview channels perfectly.

@ajw: I think you might be thinking of Aurora on Optus C1?

Are these channels scrambled, do you need a card to unscramble them.
