A Sky box is from Ireland and the United Kingdom. It is similar to the TiVo from the United States. It is a personal recording system that allows the viewer to view, rewind, fast forward, pause and record TV.

Your freeview box has one connection for cable but your sky plus has double cable how do you connect?

Your freeview box should connect to the TV Ariel on the top of your house. The Sky + cables connect to the Sky dish on the side of your house and will not work with your freeview box. If you have Sky there is nothing on freeview that you can not already get on Sky (even if you do not have a sky card).
