Back to the drawing board on that theory.

What are you actually trying to do.

You can't just feed the Sky dish signal to every TV point. It must feed a Sky receiver. You can feed the output of the Sky receiver (RF) to a central distribution amplifier in the loft which can then distribute the signal by RF to each TV point. The problem is that you can only select one channel to every TV point.

Surely it depends on whether each TV has its own digital tuner built in. If they do, then it's only a matter of providing a digital feed? Unless, of course, you know better.

Yes this is true but I would not think this is the case. If the OP confirms that this is the case then we can look at it again.
