    List of freesat from sky channels 19th Apr 17 at 8:56 AM
    i have tried googling but keep getting outdated results.
    can anyone link me to an up to date channel listing (with channel numbers) for FREESAT FROM SKY.

    i am ending my subscription but would like a list of the free channels i will still receive thru my sky dish and receiver. the only listings i can find are old as they still list BBC3 etc.

    many thanks.

    Are you sure they're actually out of date? Many EPGs do still list BBC3, my Virgin one does, but simply says it's now available online.

    i would have thought there must be up to date info out there rather than having to trawl thru each channel number to make up my own list (but may have to resort to that!) as maybe the reason is SKY do not want to promote something that doesn't earn them any money?

    I strongly suspect the list given here: http://www.freesat.co.uk/channels
    is going to be up to date, it is the official freesat website.
    Let me Google that for you...

    many thanks but that is the freesat list which differs from the FREESAT FROM SKY listings (i know it's confusing). the reason i want the sky listings is so that i have the sky channel numbers to easily locate the various broadcasts.

    if not this list: http://www.sdsdigital.co.uk/channel-list.html
    then get Sky to tell you, I suggest :-)
    Let me Google that for you...

    Hi,

    hit TV Guide on your Sky remote, scroll through channels, pick out your most watched channels and add to Favourites.

    You will get an upgrade message for any unobtainable channels you select, ignore it.
    Y'all take care now.
