What Satellite TV Channels are You Watching?

I currently have Swisscom TV for 30 CHF per month, and get something like 140 channels. But I have an old satellite TV decoder and dish sitting around that I bought around 2004. I tried then to get some Scandanavian channels on Thor 2/3 but gave up because to buy a subscription was expensive and complicated. I had it pointed at another sat for a little while that had some free-to-air channels, but it wasn't worth it and I took it all down and stuck it in the basement.

I was thinking to set it up and give it a try again, but I'm not sure whats a good sat to point it at?


Any recommendations? I know Astra/Hotbird is the most popular, but since I'm already getting Swisscom TV, I guess it's all the same channels basically?

I'd be interested still in Scandinavian or Russian channels, or anything else anyone recommends for english/russian speakers? That's either FTA or a subscription can be easily gotten?

(I mention Scandinavian becasue they usually just do subtitles for movies, and there's some good sports (hockey) on there as well )
