Channels epg is regulated by ofcom and each of spots are owned

 

Of course you could set up favourites and put them together on your own system

This has been discussed before: https://helpforum.sky.com/t5/What-s-On/Ridiculous-channel-numbering-Sky-Discovery-Viaplay-JUST-TALK/...

I'm assuming you're talking about channels on Sky Q and older satellite receivers from Sky.

Sky has a "Method for Allocating Listings". Each channel is assigned a category based on a number of factors. This file below goes into details what the different categories are and how channels are assigned.

So, as there are categories, some channels cannot be together such as TNT Sports and all of the Sky Sports channels. 

Sky didn't apply this "Method for Allocating Listings" into Sky Glass/Stream. On Sky Glass/Stream, the TNT channels are together, just like all the Sky Sports channels.

Re: TNT & Viaplay channel numbering

@rogonI do agree, even though its not a major thing, but why cant all the TNT Sports channels be together so 410- 414 and also other channels that have the same name

 

Instead of

TNT Sports 1 HD 410

TNT Sports 2 HD 411

Viaplay 1HD 412

Eurosport 1 HD 413

Eurosport 2 HD 414

Sky Sports Racing HD 415

Sky Sports Mix HD 416

TNT Sports 3 HD 417

TNT Sports 4HD 421

TNT Ulimate UHD 494

 

As you say, they all over the place and hopefully Sky can move things, after all its their EPG and system.

 

With someone with a disability, it would be so much easier for me and so many others.

 

Please Sky, can you possibly move channels so they are together and much easier. I am aware that I can set up Favourites, but I dont think I should need to do this, and it would be great to have this updated in one of the firmware updates in the future

@Super+Anthony As mentioned above, channels pay for slots on the EPG, therefore Viaplay 'own' slot 412

Ok. It's a bit frustrating but I get you.

The EPG doesn't run as firmware: it's a broadcast service in its own right.
