Transponder numbers are a little different but frequencies are the same.

Does that mean Sky News, LBC radio etc, will be migrating around that time to the new satellites?

Yup. Eute 28A is reaching end of life and will soon be removed from 28E. Eutelsat will continue to operate from 28E but will lease capacity on 2E 2F &/ or 2G

Astra 2A will be moved to another slot which I think is 23.5E

Would 2G then go to 28.35 as well and join 2E ? Or will the whole bunch meet at 28.2 ?

Don't forget there can be a few months of testing and moving the satellite after launch too so it'll be closer to the end of the year before 2G goes live. That's assuming there aren't too many delays or further Proton rocket problems...

It will be slotted somewhere around 28.2E but the exact slot is not known as yet - and makes no practical difference here in the UK anyway

I would hope that 2G joins in as close as possible to 2E and 2F to remove that slight difference in location between 28.2E and Eutelsat's 28.5 - nominal positions of course. In addition there should then be no difference in preset skew between the satellites.

Why is 2E then at 28.35 ?

As this Topic provides much useful reference info, I've made it Sticky.

And, to prevent the Forum structure becoming cumbersome, I shall Unstick some of the less used Astra 2E Topics.
