    Hi, I'm getting Sky Digital installed in my lounge on Thursady, but I've heard that you can get over 200 "freeview" channels with a satellite dish and they're free!

    I'd like to get 3 other rooms of the house cabled up to get these channels, but I have some questions...

    1) Do I really need a satellite dish to get the 200+ free channels or can you get them all via aerial?
    2) Can I hook up 3 rooms (plus Sky Digital) with just one dish? Will the signal degrade by doing this?
    3) How much would a setup like this cost roughly? Is there an "official Sky price" or do I just ask the installer?
    4) If I don't like the installer's price, could I get another installer to come later and cable up the extra rooms, or would it be impossible once the dish is up?
    5) Do I need any specific hardware to watch the 200+ channels or will any digitally-enabled TV/monitor show them?

    Any help would be appreciated. I need to know by Thursday!
