It really is relevant, though, because it means Sky can have no control over content (which is what you were complaining about) carried by non-Sky-owned channels

 

There's an important distinction between Sky as a broadcaster of its own channels, and Sky as the provider of a much wider reception platform and regulated EPG.

 

Sky has sole control of content on fourteen channels, and joint control on six more:

 


Don't forget E! and Movies24 are now Sky brands too

Pedant alert 🚨 

 

If it was a family tree, they'd be down as having a different parent and related to Sky by extension. Whereas they brought Syfy under their umbrella, the two channels mentioned here are still under the NBCU umbrella. The same applies to CNBC.

NBC Universal Entertainment channels were folded into Sky operations , the ones still remaining Sky operate and based at Sky at Osterley

 

The channels along with Syfy before the rebrand were integrated into Sky Media Village a year ago.

 

Personally I expect to E! to be shut down at some point.

Re: Sheer amount of rubbish channels on Sky

I hear you! 

I get people have read this as non sky channels but I would also include them ,tbo there is diddly on all the platforms right now , I do believe Reaper is due a second series but apart from that there doesn't seem to be much to watch or on the way .

Regards cost and discounts ,I have been a vip for 20 odd yrs  and always managed to get deals.

The glaring issue right now is their bb ....way too many outages and for me that's time to switch .

Re: Sheer amount of rubbish channels on Sky

Broadband outages may not be as a result of Sky as Sky broadband uses the openreach phone network to provide service therefore if you have an issue with broadband it's more likely to be an openreach problem. It's possible it's related to your Sky hub router but asking Sky to send a replacement and trying that would clearly indicate where the fault is likely to be.

Re: Sheer amount of rubbish channels on Sky

Actually it's nothing to do with openreach as the line is fine,it's the router and that's a sky issue ,and it's not just me having the issue .

I have gone through the sky app the last 2 times , sky had to fix it the issue the last 3 times πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Re: Sheer amount of rubbish channels on Sky

In that case i'd suggest requesting a replacement sky hub from Sky, as clearly its faulty.

If that's this Reaper then it got its second (and final) series fifteen years ago.

Re: Sheer amount of rubbish channels on Sky

I did wonder if there was a different Reaper show (other than the one 15 years ago) that i wasn't aware of when i first saw the mentioned of it. I guess not.
