If you use an active splitter fed from the RF2 output of your Sky box, that can feed signals to two or more TV sets - depending on how many outputs are provided by the active splitter. Note that a passive splitter that had no power input requirement is not suitable. An alternative is to use a distribution amplifier that can feed several signals into several location - but like the active splitter each location will need to have a coaxial cable fitted such that the signals are fed to each room/location desired.

Note also that the RF output from a Sky box's RF output socket is in analogue format so the TV set(s) will need to be set for analogue reception to view what the Sky box is set to receive. Also further note that all the TVs connected this way will have to be showing the same programme as the 'main' TV connected directly to the Sky box.
