If you had been following the posts on this website you would have seen that it is well known the channel numbers given are out-of-date. The owner is the only person who can update them but he is not available at this time.

Thanks Mike but I've only just got Freesat so haven't been following the posts. I've been watching Freeview so wanted to learn the new channel numbers for Freesat.

You would do best to visit the Freesat channels page directly. The Freesat website at https://www.freesat.co.uk/whats/full-channel-list has a link to a current PDF, scroll down to find it. You could also use https://www.freesat.co.uk/tv-guide/ to show you what channels are available and is also a useful programme guide.

Freesat and Freeview are not available in South Africa. You would do best to explore what services are streamed in you area, providing you have a fast enough internet service (it needs to be at least 8Mbps for SD and at least 16Mbps for HD).
