freesatfromsky v freeview

Hi guys

Am in the middle of moving and am having sky sd installed in the living room of the new pad next week.

I have my old sky box and soon to be cancelled veiwing card which i can take with me and use in my new office/den as it has a built in sky socket fed from the communial dish.

I beleive my old veiwing card and box will give me freesat is that correct? or will i have to buy a freesatfromsky card?

Also, what will the difference be between freesatfromsky and the tv's built in freeview? Any more/less channels with either set up? Any better/worse picture with either setup? Just wondering if it's worth taking the box and setting it up.

What cable do i need to connect the sky box to the wall socket, both are the threaded fitting, can you buy this cable or should i try to blag one of the sky installer?
