Getting Polsat channels outside of Poland.

Does anybody know how I can get Polsat channels like TVP 1 and 2 and others from outside of Poland. I live in Germany and I imagine I'm close enough to pick up the Polish satellite. I know of some other Polish people living in Germany and they get Polish t.v. I just am not sure how. I think it should just be a simple reallignment of my dish and setting my receiver to look for the channels. Can anybody give me some information?

Polsat channels like TVP 1 and 2

actually Polsat and TVP 1/2 are two different broadcasters

eastern Germany (close to the border) - you can probably receive terrestrial signal from Poland (TVP 1, TVP 2; Polsat; TVN)
if you want a dish + decoder - you can buy one in Poland, but you should have a Polish address (they don't want to sell abroad, because, I guess, it's some kind of written or unwritten agreement, between braodcasters)

if you already have a dish, there are no special Polish satellites, our 3 "digital platfoms" (Polsat Cyfrowy, Canal+, n) use either Hotbird 6 (13 degrees East) or Astra (I don't the parameters)

The problem is that there are very few free-to-air channels, most are crypted, so you have to subscribe (without Polish address may be difficult)

actually i have the "Cyfra +" package which cost about £180 GBP - still, works well over in the Gulf, better than the tat they broadcast !

Is anyone aware that Dish Network is cancelling polish channels? Is there anything that can be done about it? Is anyone else transmitting KINO POLSKA, ITVN, POLSAT 2, etc.? I have TV Polonia through Direct TV but they do not provide those channels.
