If I want to link 2 additional TVs to my sky+ box via a aerial booster in my loft can I enhace the signal so it is as good as the TV signal on the main TV connected to my sky+ box. My assumption is the signal will be split when being transmitted back out halfing the picture quality to the 2 additional TV's !?

I'd say try and see what the quality is like befoe shelling out. if you need more oomph, several companies make loft boxes for this very purpose. many are comaptible with the magic eye devices that allow you to comtraol the Sky box from the remote set.

Here in Israel, Yes Package can add distribution to other rooms at no extra charge. (I haven't checked lately if they changed this offer)
Does Sky charge extra for adding more boxes in other rooms?
If the charge is modest, then they might be able to change the LNB to a triple (or quad-I think the Sky Plus needs dual LNB, if I am not mistaken) and watch different programmes in the three rooms, otherwise the same progrmme would be viewed in all rooms.
The quality should be the same as in the main room.
