Re: Changes to the Sky TV guide - November 2023

If you have Sky Glass, you can skip the tv guide forward to a week later..... it's looking like next Tuesday (14th) is the day!! Channel 310 (currently Sky Drama) is showing a few Christmas films so far.....Although I imagine the channel will change to 302 or 303?

I was told it may be around the 10-12th of November as that is the time it was aired last year (2022).
