sky is not hacked m8 only way would be to ake over a legit sky dish with a valid sub card and plug it in the feed there.

you can get various packages open that can be changed to english to but not sky i'm afraid

and in benidor youll need a dish bigger than the caravan for a decent reception, about 2.4M. pinkhelmets has installed many dishes in that area so will be able to advise better, but as for hacking the channels, that cannot be done m8

im sure i read somewhere that the best thing to do is get one of those dodgy boxes that recieve from big masts that mafia type people errect and send out the sky uk signal through those?

or just use anotgher sat with english sub audio channels?

There's dozens of companies offering the local pirate re-transmitted signals in benidorm, but they are all subscription service (although obviously cheaper than sky).
Recently there has been raids on these illegal transmitters though so some have been closed down which has caused some local uproar. But if its illegal what do people expect? Get the service if it suits you but dont trust these companies & systems long term. In any case many of the benidorm caravan camps have their own solutions so check with some neighbours to see what they have. Usually 1 large dish or 1 commercial pirate system will feed the whole camp and you just pay to them for your service.

there were four people on the other site that paid together they had a pole put up and each had a connection to the caravan but they said that whatever they used was aimed at a nearbye hotel and was useing there dish
can this be done they said they made a one off payment each

Yes thats most likely the Bali hotel. With the mafia system 'allegedly' they pay off the spanish government for broadcast licences, so they turn a blind eye and leave them alone lol. Their transmitter is the one at the top of the tallest hotel in europe....
If its a one-off payment system then i'd say its likely just the free channels like bbc, itv, ch4, ch5, sky news etc. It's best to ask other english there or look in CBnews for latest offers as I dont really have anyone to recommend for the re-transmitter systems.
There's no hack for sky anyway, as already mentioned.
