Most satellite dishes in the UK point to one of the Astra satellites at about 28° east (of south). So SSE. Mine is a Sky dish which now gets Freesat. Useful also when looking at pictures on property websites to see which side gets the sun.
Other satellites are anywhere from about 30°E to 30°W. Presumably at higher latitudes the scope is less.
