    Yes you will need the dish. I phoned sky and ordered a freeview card to go into the box. cost £20

    Freeview only refers to the digital service via an aerial, there is a non-subscription digital service on satellite (requires dish and SKY digibox/card) but the channel line up is different. Some free channels on Freeview are PAY channels on satellite but there are more channels both TV and radio on satellite.

    SKY sell the whole system complete with install for £150 or you can source and install the hardware yourself, not as easy as buying a Freeview box and pluging it into the aerial though:)

    You will find more details here.

    The Sky version is called FreeSat.
