Possible to grab DVB signal direct from satellite?

I stumbled across this list of free satelite DVB signals.
Is it possible to use our nifty DVB cards to pull in these signals?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Possible to lock onto a signal..yes...in theory..however...remember that most of those 'free' programs are avail for the picking, but you wont be able to fully view the content. Notice on the right column that alot of those require DigicypherII decryption.

Also note the small 18-21in dishes are too small and imobile for what you are wanting (also you have no way to provide the switching signal power to the LNBF). You would need at LEAST 90cm dish with a servo to rotate to view all the satellites.

Here is a link to some of the sites I looked at in the past:
