UHD, HD and SD swapping and prominence

HD

For channels with identical SD & HD versions, channel numbers sometimes differ between HD & SD boxes. Where a channel has both an SD & an HD version, subscribers with an SD box always see the SD version of a channel in a more prominent position than the HD version. Subscribers with an HD box generally see the HD channel listed in the more prominent position.

The tables of channels in the main article assume that the HD version is always shown in the more prominent position (e.g. because a customer has the Sky HD packages). In reality viewers this will not always be the case (see rest of this section) in which case the HD & SD channels should be swapped when looking at the lists. On older Sky Digital boxes that cannot receive HD channels, all HD channels should be swapped with the SD.

For subscribers to Sky HD, non-premium subscription HD channels and Sky's premium subscription HD channels (Sky Sports) on an HD box are "HD swapped" with the SD counterpart, giving the HD version of the channel greater prominence in the EPG. This also occurs for some premium subscription channels e.g. Racing TV. Subscribers to Sky Cinema and Sky Sports packages get both the SD & HD versions of the Sky Cinema and/or Sky Sports channels respectively and the HD versions are given greater prominence on the EPG.

For free-to-air channels the HD channel is generally in the more prominent position on all HD boxes, regardless of subscription. However, in the case of a small number of channels with regional variations in their programming or advertising (BBC One, BBC Two, ITV1 & Channel 4) the HD version is only in the more prominent position in areas of the UK that receive identical HD & SD versions. On HD boxes in Ireland, RTÉ One HD, RTÉ2 HD and TG4 HD are in the more prominent positions of 101, 102 and 104 respectively, regardless of whether the HD pack is enabled.

For certain premium channels (TNT Sports Channels), the HD swap applies only for subscribers to those channels.

Ultra HD

Where channels are broadcast in ultra high definition (UHD), HD and SD, and where the UHD and HD versions are swapped, the UHD version in prominent with both the HD and SD versions being secondary channels (e.g. Sky Sports Main Event UHD).

Ultra-HD

Unless the HD version of a channel or service is free-to-air, ultra HD downloadable content requires the Sky HD pack and the relevant standard pack (if required). For example, the series Bulletproof is shown on Sky One. To watch Bulletproof in ultra HD, the Sky Signature and Sky HD pack are required.

Broadcast hours

Broadcast hours shown in the tables are for the HD and SD channels. Where the HD and/or SD channel broadcasts for 24 hours a day and there is a +1, the +1 will do likewise. Where the HD and/or SD channel broadcast for under 24 hours, an hour should be added to the start and closing times of the HD/SD channel to establish the +1 channel's hours.

Channel formats and aspects

Format: An ultra-high definition (UHD) channel broadcasts in 2160p (on Sky Q boxes only). HD channels are broadcast in 1080p (Sky Q boxes) or 1080i (Sky+HD boxes). Standard definition channels broadcast in 576i.

Aspect: Most SD and +1 channels are broadcast in 16:9 SDTV. For genres that have channels that broadcast in 4:3 aspect, an aspect column is included in the table of that genre and "4:3" appears in the relevant rows.

Footnotes to Sky’s genres and number ranges table

  • 1 - Separate genres but have shared number ranges in the 101-299, 340-349 and 800 series.
  • 2 - Generally SD duplicates on HD boxes (or HD duplicates on SD boxes). There is a dedicated secondary channel number range (801-898) covering the Entertainment, Documentaries, Movies, Music, Sports (subscription/free only), News, Religion, Shopping and International genres; and dedicated secondary channel number ranges for the Kids genre (640-659) and the Entertainment (UK HD in Ireland) sub-genre (340-349). On occasion, Sky may reshuffle dedicated secondary channel lists to align the order with that of the main channels.

Currently unused or unassigned numbers

Genre Sub-categories (if appropriate) Main channel number range Secondary channel2 number range Notes
Entertainment & Documentaries Ex-spillover channels
450-489 The 450-489 range was used an overspill for channels that did not fit into the 101-199 range. This is not currently needed but it may be used in future if the 101-199 range becomes full.
Unassigned numbers 200, 300, 400, 500, 540-579, 600, 700, 800, 0100, 0250-0999 These numbers are not assigned to the EPG on Sky in any region, but may be assigned in the future.
Testing 1000-1499 Channels in this range are used by Sky for testing, or in some cases for alternative versions of a channel (e.g. Irish or pub versions). These will appear in test bouquets only.
Hidden 65535 Channels without an EPG number, but are still in a bouquet, share this number. This includes red button channels and data-only streams. These can appear on the EPG on old Sky Digiboxes that have never had a Sky Viewing Card inserted.

UK HD version in Ireland

In Ireland, the HD version of some channels are in the 340s. The SD versions of these channels are more prominent because these have adverts tailored to Ireland, while the HD version has adverts tailored to the UK. As a result, the HD version is placed in a dedicated secondary channel list in the 340s, rather than in the 800s.

This table shows the different channel numbers with and without the HD pack.

Bonus channels

Ireland

In Ireland, the channels listed in the table are defined in some Sky publications as "Bonus Channels" but are either included within the Sky Q Lite pack (i.e. RTÉ, Virgin Media, TG4, Oireachtas TV), the Sky Signature pack (i.e. some Channel 4 channels) or are free-to-air (i.e. BBC channels). The BBC channels listed in the table are free-to-air in the UK and Ireland and do not require the Sky Signature pack.

This table shows which channels are free-to-air, and which require either the Q Lite pack, the Signature pack or the HD pack in Ireland.

Region mapping

Sky divides the UK up into regions (and there is an additional region covering Ireland). The tables below show which region of BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV1/STV/UTV (HD/SD/+1), which advertising region of Channel 4 (HD/SD/+1) and which version of local tv (where available) is shown in each Sky region. The tables exclude regional channels in the 951-980 range.

Until 8 January 2024 all areas of the UK and Ireland show the same version of BBC One (Nightlife) in SD. BBC One Nightlife is a version of BBC One that simulcasts BBC One Network but without local news bulletins. Until the same date all areas of the UK and Ireland show the Network version of BBC Two in SD (the Network version is the version broadcast in HD on 102 in England and Scotland). The SD versions of BBC One and BBC Two are therefore not shown in the tables below. After 8 January 2024 no SD versions of these channels will be broadcast on Sky.

HD/SD Note:

  • The numbers shown in these tables are the numbers available on HD boxes. For example, when the HD and SD versions of an ITV1 region are identical, ITV1 HD is shown on channel 103 while ITV1 SD is on channel 803.
  • For SD boxes that cannot receive HD channels, the numbers shown below need to be reversed (e.g. ITV1 SD is on 103, while ITV1 HD is on 803).

Footnotes for the Manual Tuning table

  • AD - Audio description.
  • 1 - The colour relates to the level of encryption that applies. See Channel format, packs and services for the full list.
  • 2 - Manual tuning is the only means of receiving channel in these regions.
  • 3 - The tuning details are displayed in this format: Frequency (hertz) - Polarisation - Standard - Modulation Scheme - Symbol Rate (Mbaud) - FEC
  • Enc - Channel is encrypted, but not region locked, so it is available in Ireland.
  • The Ireland advertising regions of Channel 4 HD, Channel 4 and Channel 4 +1 are encrypted and region locked to Ireland and cannot be viewed in the UK. They are therefore omitted from this table.
