Sorry. Didn't read the Subject line.
If it's a Hills Freeview Satellite box then I doubt it.
Will be Freeview only.

Hills boxes are locked down to freeview only, there is a way of doing it but it is a huge workaround

No its not.

In the menu, there is a setting "show non-freeview channels".

Turn it on and tune away.....
