Sky plans EPG shake up

March 10, 2008

Sky is planning a reshuffle of its electronic programme guide (EPG) to create more spaces in 13 of its genres. The broadcaster is planning to fill gaps created by channel launches and departures, with existing channels moving up in the guide. They will, however, retain their positions relative to each other.

Six genres – lifestyle and culture; religion; music; shopping; gaming; dating – will be moved to different channel number blocks. The changes will be made during summer 2008 and channels will be informed of their new positions towards the end of April.
