HD swap and prominence of HD channels

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, ITV & 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, BBC One HD is more prominent because the SD & HD versions are both BBC One NI but BBC Two SD is more prominent because the HD & SD versions show different regions (England & NI respectively); and 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 (BT Sport Channels), the HD swap applies only for subscribers to those channels.

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). Sports (pay per view) and some entertainment channels in the 970s & 980s have secondary channels within the main number range for the genre. On occasion, Sky may reshuffle dedicated secondary channel lists to align the order with that of the main channels.

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. During the 2012 Olympics this range was used for BBC Olympic channels and Channel 4 Paralympic channels (though that was before the 2018 reshuffle that reorganised the number ranges).
Unassigned numbers 200, 300, 400, 500, 540-579, 600, 700, 800, 0100, 0250-0999, 1500-65534 These numbers are not assigned to the EPG on Sky in any region, but may be assigned in the future.
Special 000-099 Channels with 3 digits from 000 to 099 are used for pop-up channels, such as the now defunct Sky Ocean channel or extended advertisements. These channels are accessed by the red button. They are a loop of a few minutes of content.

These channels are generally not used anymore in favour of downloaded previews and advertisements.
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

The BBC channels listed in the table are free-to-air in the UK and Ireland and do not require the Sky Signature pack.

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 (SD/HD), BBC Two (SD/HD), ITV/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.

HD/SD Note:

  • The numbers shown in these tables the numbers available on HD boxes. For example, when the HD and SD versions of a ITV region are identical, ITV HD is shown on channel 103 while ITV SD is on channel 803. Where they are not identical, the SD version is on 103 and the HD version is on 176.
  • For SD boxes that cannot receive HD channels, the numbers shown below need to be reversed (e.g. ITV SD is on 103, while ITV HD is on 803).
  • The HD channels shown on 115, 138, 176 and 347, are on these numbers regardless of type of box as the SD version of those channels (i.e. on channel 101, 102, 103, 104, 108 or 142) is given greater prominence because it is the more local version.

Footnotes for the region mapping tables:

  • 1 - Local TV are channels that are only available for specific regions. These do not include local channels broadcast throughout the UK or Ireland (e.g. BBC Scotland, S4C & RTÉ One).
  • 2 - S4C in the HTV Wales region does not follow the standard SD/HD swap rules. In Wales (region 32), S4C is on 104/804, but in the HTV Wales region (43), S4C HD is on 104/828. So, the secondary channel number mirrors the primary position for S4C in Wales in region 32 (104) but in region 43 mirrors S4C's 'rest of UK' position (134).
  • BBC One Generic version - This BBC One channel is the generic HD version that simulcasts BBC One London but does not broadcast local news bulletins.
  • BBC Two Network version - This BBC Two channel is the network version that is the main BBC Two channel in England and Scotland.
