Sky by the numbers

Editor News Make a Comment

From Tuesday 1 September 1, Sky will be making some changes to the entertainment and factual channels numbering. The move comes as part of the growth of Sky’s offering and allows room for further channels to be added across its portfolio, including the recently announced TLC and Discovery Turbo.

“We don’t take the decision to make these types of changes lightly, however as our business evolves this move allows us more flexibility to add further entertainment offerings for our customers, including new channels and pop-up events,” said Sky ceo John Fellet.

In all, 15 channels will move, bringing together genres to make it easier for customers to find their favourite content.

Customers will be advised of the changes in a variety of ways including in Skywatch magazine, online at, through Sky’s social media channels, messaging across the channels themselves, and those who are signed up to receive email updates from SKY will also get information this way.

Customers need do nothing to prepare for these changes other than be aware they’re happening, as the channel moves will not affect any future recordings booked on their MySky planners.
