I recently got a new android tv, which is freeview plus ready. We have netflix as well, so I canceled our sky.  Before we had sky in our main lounge, and bedroom tv plays whatever sky channel is left on, which is sufficient for us (we don't watch different tvs at the same time).

There's an existing satellite dish. I didn't think we would get freeview without a "fishbone" antena.  However, I was pleasantly surprised, we got the freeview after plugging the cable that's connected to the bedroom's tv (this cable used to connect to this "RF modulator"), not through the cable from the satellite dish. I found it a bit strange how the new tv received these channels by connecting to another tv. Anyway, my question is now how do I set it up, that I can still see freeview channel in the bedroom, from the tv in the lounge whichever channel we leave it on like before.  

Just to make it a bit more clear. One cable from the satellite dish and one cable connecting to the bedroom tv that are available to play around with lounge tv.  

Hope this is simple to set up, thanks!

You cant as TVs typically do not have outputs on them, you would just use the tuners in the TVs independantly for off air content, and if you want to get smart content on the other TV you would need to get a seperate box for that which gets the services you want.
