Sky will be doing a major rearrangement of the channels from March 1st next year in an attempt to tackle the incredible muddle the channels are in

HD swaps will be enforced for 101-105 where a suitable HD version exists, & a new section will be made specifically for +1's. So ITV will have the HD everywhere except the 10 areas still missing

More details here

Sky gears up for big reshuffle - a516digital

I see this as an interesting proposal - maybe it will spur the PSB's into getting more of their missing areas transmitting in HD.

Unfortunately it may also lead to even more +1's launching!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Quality bible bashing ?

Yeah, who needs a documentary section - it's not like the Millenials aren't dumb enough already.

Agreed with the general revamp - it's a mess.

I wonder how my Pace 2200B and Sony VTX 750U will get on with the new EPG.

yeah but i dont think it said any much about sd
Because there are no changes to the SD services really. All thats happening is the order of the channels as they appear on the epg is being changed & where people have HD boxes they will have BBC 1 BBC2 ITV C4 & C5 HD services on 101-105 where a suitable service exists.

It talks about swaps NOT replacements AND there is absolutely no mention of Freesat - where did that come from?

I cannot decide between lost chain cross-linked at cluster 10549355 orphan truncated or whether it is a case of unrecoverable error in folder system volume information, either way it beggars belief
