The channel number for BBC Scotland of 106 suggests that Sky One HD is moving but I think 106 is the Freesat number.  The BBC press notice says that on Sky it will be on 115 in Scotland and 457 in rest of UK with SD version on 876.  

 

I see there are a couple more temporary removals.  There are a lot of old labels still hanging around when you try manual tuning via other channels.  Any chance they could be removed, please? For example:
