I am moving to the Arctic, the house that i will be living in already has a Star choice dish, but I don't want to switch because I have BEV receivers. Will the star dish receive the BEV signals?

I have seen this work before, you will have to change the LNB, re point the dish. An old Direct TV (square end) LNB should work.
It would be easier to just take the old dish.

I agree, much easier to take a 75 or 90cm dish made for Bell reception with you.

I believe Bell TV will provide the dish free!

If you are a current Bell TV customer, call them and they will sent you a new dish to your new location, they may send you a larger dish depending on how far north you will be. Your dish will probably face slightly toward the ground, as the Nimiq satellites will be just above the horizon!
The one good thing is snow collecting on the dish shouldn't be a problem!
