Footnotes to Entertainment and Documentaries table

  • ED1 - The SD and HD versions of these channels have identical programming to the UK versions but the SD versions carry adverts tailored to the ROI while the HD version does not. As a result, on an HD box in ROI the HD channel is listed in a less prominent position (the 340s) than the SD version.
  • ED2 - On the Sky+ app, channels 141 & 832 are swapped. Tapping BBC One on channel 141 will show 832. This works in reverse, and also when using the keypad within the app.
  • ED3 - BBC One HD (channel 976) does not have local news content. For all other programmes, it simulcasts BBC One London.
  • ED4 - BBC Two Northern Ireland HD has not yet launched on Sky. As a result, BBC Two Northern Ireland SD is on channel 142 while BBC Two HD (Generic version) is on channel 347 on both SD and HD boxes.
