As carl6 said, just use one of the existing RG6 cables for the antenna.
If it is an older Dish 500 there may be some SW-1 switches in the line, which must be removed.
I mounted a 4-bay + reflector screen UHF antenna to an old Dish mount and it was fine.

You may want to make some marks on the dish and mast so you can reinstall the dish. Just a line to match up is enough.
Check the TVs for the presence of the ATSC chip to read digital signals or you will need one for each set.
