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. Where a channel is on the EPG in a limited area of the United Kingdom and is is HD swapped there, the United Kingdom channel number box in the HD number column is also shaded yellow e.g. UTV/UTV HD & RTE Two/RTE Two HD.

In a small number of cases (relating to BBC One and BBC Two), the HD swap is not applied across the whole of the United Kingdom. Where the swap does not apply across the whole of the region or regions listed in the region column, 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. Further information about HD swap relating to terrestrial channels is set out in the Regional/Audio Description table.

  • E1 - Free-to-air in United Kingdom but defined in Republic of Ireland as a Bonus Pack channel.
  • E2 & E2a - 23 standard definition Entertainment channels (footnote E2 or E2a) have a different version of the channel which has Irish adverts for Irish viewers (the HD equivalents of these channels, where they exist, have United Kingdom adverts in both countries).

  • E5 - Free-to-air on Freeview but not on Sky.

Regional/Audio Description

This table provides a full list of all regional variations of BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, ITV +1, Channel 4, Channel 4 +1 and Channel 5 (including HD versions) available on satellite and shows where they are listed in the EPG. You will receive the version relevant for your region between 101 and 215 on the EPG (sometimes these are HD swapped - see below). Some of these channels are also available in the regional section (951 to 979).

In most cases regional versions can be manually tuned in. If there is any part of the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland where a regional version is not on the EPG the tuning details are shown. In a small number of cases, e.g. BBC Two HD, the tuning details do not need to be shown as the channel is on the EPG in all areas.

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. Similarly 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.

The regional variations of ITV/STV/UTV are on the EPG in the United Kingdom on 103 (or 178 in the case of UTV where it is HD swapped) in the relevant region. ITV +1 is in on EPG 131 in the relevant region of the United Kingdom. However, most regions (some ITV HD channels excepted) can also be manually tuned outside the region as shown in this table.

Details about HD swaps that apply to BBC One, BBC Two and UTV are shown. HD swaps are shaded yellow where the swap involves a simulcast of the SD and HD versions; or orange where the two versions are not simulcasts. For example, in the Republic of Ireland the BBC One and BBC Two swaps are with English versions of BBC One HD and BBC Two HD so these are shaded orange.

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.
