Sky is the brand name for BSkyB's digital satellite television service platform, transmitted from the Astra satellites located at 28.2° East and Eutelsat satellites at 28.5° East. The service is in the main available through subscription packages with additional pay-per-view channels. Sky also provide a 'Freesat-from-Sky' option (not to be confused with Freesat) for a one off payment which has the free-to-air channels plus a small number of free-to-view ones (which require a Sky viewing card).

This list details the current channels available on Sky in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It also includes those that are coming in the future. There are currently around 700 television and radio channels available on the Sky platform. Some channels are not available in all regions. Subscription HD channels also require the Family Bundle in the United Kingdom and the appropriate pack (e.g. Original or Variety) in Ireland.

HD Swap

In genres with HD channels, channel numbers sometimes differ depending on whether you are an HD subscriber or not. HD subscribers will find that most HD channels are "HD swapped" with the standard definition counterpart, meaning that the HD version of the channel has greater prominence in the EPG. Where an HD swap applies, the channel numbers in the tables below have been shaded either yellow or orange.

In most cases the HD swap applies across the whole of the United Kingdom and/or Republic of Ireland - in such cases the relevant channel number boxes are shaded yellow. In a small number of cases, the HD swap is not applied across the whole of the United Kingdom. In such cases, the United Kingdom channel number box is shaded orange and an explanation is included in the Regions column about which region(s) are swapped. In the case of BBC One and BBC Two in the Republic of Ireland, the channels that are swapped are not simulcasts so are shaded orange rather than yellow.

In the case of the BT Sports Channels (including ESPN), the HD swap applies only if you subscribe to the BT Sport HD pack.

  • E5 - 1 hour timeshift service.

Regional/Audio Description (UK only)

Each BBC One region shown below is available on 101 or 141 in the relevant geographic region and that region is not available from EPG 951 to 968 (so, for example, BBC One London is on 101 in London so 954 is not listed on the EPG in London). Similarly, each BBC One HD region shown below is available on 101 or 141 in the United Kingdom in the relevant geographic region and that region is not available from EPG 976 to 979; and each BBC Two nation shown below is available in the United Kingdom on either 102 or 142 in the relevant geographic region and that nation is therefore omitted between 969 and 972.

For details of how to receive these channels in the Republic of Ireland, please see entertainment list above.

The following regional variations that broadcast on other platforms in the United Kingdom are not available on satellite: STV (North Tayside); ITV Border (Scotland); STV +1 (North); and UTV +1.
