You can turn your sky box into a freesat box with a one off fee

I dont think you cannot record though. So if you want to record you need a new freesat recorder.

Freesat is a different satellite but it doesnt need moving because freesat is also available off of the sky satellite

nothing, pull your sky card out of your box and you will see what channels you get, I don't get Dave but all other freeview channels.

Just cancel your sky subsciption and you will still get all the free channels, but no recording, if you want to record just swap the box for a freesat recorder
