Yes, there is no difference in the LNB and dish between HD and standard reception. The difference is in the set top box you buy.

Answer(s)
Yes, Freesat has an EPG which is based on Astra2 satellite and that is where your Sky dish will be pointed. You will also be able to pick up any free to air channels in addition to the Freesat ones but for these you won't get an EPG.
