Current Sky logo

Sky is the brand name for Sky UK Ltd's digital satellite television service platform, transmitted from the Astra satellites located at 28.2° East. The service is in the main available through subscription packs with additional pay-per-view channels.

This page details the current channels available on Sky in the UK & Ireland. Some channels are not available in both countries and coverage within the UK also varies for some channels, as shown in the channel lists below.

Channel format, packs and services

The shading in the channel number boxes in the channel lists below shows the format of the channel. This table is a key to those formats.

Channel number box Description
101 An HD (high definition) channel.
101 An SD (standard definition) channel that is not a timeshift.
201 A timeshifted channel in SD that broadcasts 1 hour later after the HD and/or SD channel unless stated. Therefore often referred to as +1 channels.
Sky Q An ultra-high definition (UHD) channel (2160p on Sky Q boxes only)

This table shows the colour coding used to show what type of subscription (if any) is needed to view a channel or service.

Adverts

Unless indicated in the tables, channels with adverts carry the same adverts in the UK and Ireland. Where adverts differ between the UK and Ireland, the UK and Irish flags are both shown in the adverts column (this column is omitted in genres where all channels in the genre carry the same adverts across the UK and Ireland).

In the entertainment and documentaries number range, there are several channels marked 340s Flag-ie.png. The HD versions of these channels carry identical adverts across the UK and Ireland but the SD versions differ and carry adverts specific to the UK and Ireland. In Ireland, these channels have opted to put their SD version in the more prominent 100-199 series. As the SD version is, exceptionally, more prominent, the HD version is placed in a dedicated secondary channel list for Ireland rather than in the 800 series. In the kids genre, both Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. have opted to put the SD version in the primary number range in Ireland for the same reason.

Commercial programme guide

The information on this page relates to the programme guide for residential customers. Sky also maintain a guide for its commercial customers (licensed premises and other commercial outlets). The numbering is similar to those for residential customers but there are some differences. For example, some Sky Sports channels in the 400-410 series are not on the same numbers as residential channels; some channels (for example, in the adult section) do not appear on commercial programme guides; and the HD swap system does not apply on commercial programme guides so the SD version is given greater prominence.

On commercial boxes, a version with a pint glass on-screen replaces the residential version of all Sky Sports, BT Sports, Premier Sports and eir channels. Programming is identical to the residential version, but adverts are targeted to pub-goers.

Additional information

Main article: Additional information for List of channels on Sky (UK and Ireland)

The HD swap and prominence of HD channels section explains how this article deals with SD and HD channels.

The Bonus channels in Ireland section describes channels that are defined in some Sky publications as "Bonus channels".

The Broadcast hours section explains how the tables below set out the broadcast hours for all channels.

The Channel formats section explains the broadcasting formats of all channels.

The Sky’s genres and number ranges table sets out the channels in easy to read categories and explains the channel number ranges for these categories.

It also shows the regions for which audio description is available on these channels and the regions in which local TV and local radio are available.

The Manual tuning table sets out the frequencies for channels not listed on the Sky programme guide that can be manually tuned, with details of the region(s) in which manual tuning is needed.
