List of channels on Sky (UK and Ireland)

From TVCL – TV Channel Lists
(Redirected from List of Channels on Sky)
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. Sky also provide a 'Freesat-from-Sky' option (not to be confused with Freesat from the BBC and ITV) 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 (UK) & Ireland (Ire). Some channels are not available in all regions.

Freesat-from-Sky

More info: Freesat from Sky on Wikipedia

Freesat-from-Sky (FsfS) is a service available in the UK from Sky UK. FsfS contains all the free-to-air channels available on Sky UK and Freesat, but also transmits free-to-view channels that are not available on the BBC's and ITV's Freesat platform. FsfS contains the free-to-air and free-to-view channels shown on this page. A "Freesat-from-Sky" viewing card is required. Even though Sky UK provides this platform, it does not advertise it. FsfS is available for one-off payments covering the equipment and viewing card.
