Re: Changes to the Sky TV Guide - April 2024

@KevNewMedia Confirm DMAX moves to 159/259 +1, but was wondering if 184/284 could have been kept WBD lot of channel movements and never get new entertainment genre channels acquired by 160, 173, 175, 183 or 184 pushes out 172/272 NI where is last seen on EarthxTV HD below sky 180. WildEarth HD failed last year 'Documentaries'.

Re: Changes to the Sky TV Guide - April 2024

...so that just leaves Virgin Three, RTÉjr, RTÉ News and Oireachtas TV as the only Irish channels left that are still broadcasting in SD on satellite. Does anyone know when or if those four channels will ever be available in HD on satellite?

Re: Changes to the Sky TV Guide - April 2024

@KevNewMedia Right... Sky EPG even have the resources to enforce 312 as SkyPremiere+1 are closed at the end of April, 315 and 316 really works when TCM pull past 10 months after taking down movie genre then got disappeared like ROK doe's. Movies24/+ maybe closing in with unallocated space makes sense would free up 315 and 316. 🤔

I doubt there is any rush. VirginMedia More is not even on satellite in SD.

There is a good reason, just like Sky Atlantic on Sky (for both UK and Ireland), Virgin Media More is exclusive to Virgin TV subscribers in Ireland, even though those customers have yet to receive Sky Sports Tennis.

Re: Changes to the Sky TV Guide - April 2024

Completely irrelevant to my question, since Virgin Media More is deliberately designed to be exclusive to Virgin Media and not available on any other platform.

 

By the way, Virgin Three is already available in HD on Sky Glass, so why can't it also be available in HD on Sky Q? That's also what I'm wondering.

HD broadcast over satellite has an additional cost due to the increased data volume travelling over the orbital link compared to that required for SD: it would be up to the channel owner to decide if that's viable.
