Can we set in stone for anyone who is about to ask that this new venture does NOT mean the BBC and ITV etc will remove themselves from the Sky EPG, merely that they are going to provide, to quote their blurb, an "additional" means of accessing their services? Sky watchers therefore do NOT need to buy another receiver to see these channels? Or I have I got this completely wrong?

It's all pretty vague at the moment, I would be very surprised if they removed themselves from the Sky EPG, as ITV tried without it and suffered.

The BBC ITV etc WILL NOT be leaving 28E - They certainly arent going to throw 8 million potential viewers away! All BBC Freesat is in effect is new non Sky equipment and channels not tied to the Sky epg.
