Wild Pete's Sky Channel Guide
These are the channels found on the Sky Digital Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), also known as SkyGuide. The channel names are exactly as they appear on the EPG (apart from BBC1 & 2 on 101 & 102 and ITV1 on 103, which vary depending on your region). I keep a close watch for any changes, so expect to see updates on this page soon after they occur. The list shows the channels as provided to viewers in England with an HD receiver. In Wales, for example, Channel 4 and S4C exchange places and there are further variations in Ireland, such as RTE1 on channel 101. Numbering of channels on a non-HD box varies slightly, eg Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD are in alternate places.
I've also created a handy list of channels in the form of a Word document, which you can download here. In addition there are cut-down versions showing only the free to air channels and HD channels.
There are other broadcasts from the satellites at 28.2/28.5 East that are not included on the EPG, including test transmissions and ITV1 regions. You can find those listed on my Other Channels page.
Something else you may find of interest: copies of some old Sky EPG listings! See here for further details.
Please feel free to contact me with comments, but if you have any questions please check my Frequently Asked Questions page to make sure I haven't already provided answers. Please also see that page for guidance if you want to send me mails with any attachments.
The list of changes as shown below is also available as an RSS feed, with thanks to James Smith for his help. Link to http://feed43.com/wildsat.xml
