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. 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.
