IIRC on DVB the audio description is carried as a secondary audio 
channel in the same way that other languages are carried on multilingual 
channels such as EuroNews.

Ergo any program that can select separate audio channels should work.

To test DVB-S software on the Astra 28 East constellation of satellites 
(ie. Sky/Freesat), just tune to EuroNews and select a foreign language.
