      Yes, no problem, you just need to run a cable from the dish to the bedroom and get a card

      Yes, just give them a ring, I think is a one off payment of 20 (may be wrong). If you can find someone with an old card that should work.

      No, you will need a FreesatFromSky card or an expired Sky subscription card (or no card at all). There's no such thing as a "Freeview card".
