Hi I had Sky connected into 3 different rooms earlier this year. I am going to cancel Sky so I would like a Freeview UHF aerial put up. The house has never had a UHF aerial before. I was thinking to save money getting one put up, the installer could use the existing Satellite wiring for the new aerial. Is that correct? The rooms are a long way from each other so new wiring would be expensive.

The coax will be fine, just check any splitters are OK. They should be fine but you may get the odd one that isn't.

Should be no problem assuming that you are located in UHF coverage.

Put a diplexer in so you can have both on the same cable incase you do go back to having sky again.

That is also assuming that they ran the sat dish signal to all 3 rooms, if it was just a modulator output from one sky box to the other 2 rooms then that would mean additional splitter needed.
