    No.

    Sorry I thought you were lookinf for a DVB-T tuner. You need an analogue tuner.

    DVB-T = Digital Video Broadcast -Terrestrial. More commonly known as Freeview. You cannot use this to watch SKY. For SKY you need an analog tuner and then feed it with the signal from the SKY box.

    I don't have any experience with analog tuners so am not qualified to give advice regaring these tuners.
