M: Sky+ does not require connection to a terrestrial analogue to work. It gets all it needs from the two links to the satellite dish.

Yes.
You can also view all the other BBC regions.
To view other ITV1 regions you need to scan for the different channels manually.
ITV1+1 only has some regions, so your local news on ITV1+1 may be different from ITV1.

I have a Sony Bravia TV with built in freeview viewing TV through a rooftop aerial I also have a Bush freesat HD box which needs a sat dish fitting to make it work. After having fitted and connected my HD box will I be able to use the freeview and freesat independently of each other or will everything come through my sat dish.

K I Moore: Freeview uses an aerial, Freesat uses the dish.
