You will need a rather large dish to receive Nilesat on 7W.
I would suggest to arrange to have a subscription to Nova instead, as you can receive it quite easily with standard dish size pointing to Hot Bird 13E. (assuming their sport channels are good for you)
What is bfbs?

The dish size for 7W depends on where you will be moving to.

It will depend on your UK location. I think 2.4m is a good starting point.
We have a thread on Showtime reception in the UK and the dish size needed. Take a look at that. Also do a search on Showtime.
On which satellite is the BFBS?

BFBS is currently on 7E, altough seem to be moving to 10E. In either case a 60-80cm dish is more than enough for either.

And yes you would if you know how to set it up.

I think that you will need a dreambox receiver in each room, if you want to view different channels in each room.
One box can act as a server, the one with the subscription card in it.

Sunbathing in a dish?
It would be more like sun cocking. Quite dangerous.

My advice is to stay in Cyprus - the weather is far better!
