No. The Sky box can only decode one channel at a time.

If you have a TV aerial you'll be able to watch the FTA channels.

Your best bet would be to go and buy a Freeview box for the other TV.

Most reliable way is to ring a local installer, and they can provide a freeview receiver and set it up for you.
