A sat dish won't pick up the channel as they work by line of sight. If you want to watch a live stream then you are going to have to find someone that (illegally) streams the live channel over the internet.
If you want to watch individual shows then: AETV.com + proxy. Hulu + proxy. Sidereel (depending how much you watch you may want to buy a megavideo subscription in addition). Torrents. Newsgroups.
I have the reverse problem trying to watch UK shows in USA online. For whatever reason if I click on certain shows to watch OR try to listen to UK radio stations I get a message saying "this channel is not allowed in USA". It's obviously something to do with copyright, money or both...it usually is. What is it that you like on A&E channel, NeilMcc? It's a channel I occasionally watch here in USA
