* Sky channel numbers to be confirmed, next week?

On Sky, the availability of BBC Red Button streams directly accessed by a channel number is restricted by a limit of standard definition channel slots available on Sky’s Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Broadcasters have to trade EPG slots, and the availability of slots depends on current supply, for example if another channel has ceased broadcasting. Therefore BBC RB 4, 5 and 6 will be available on Sky via the red button only, and not available for direct selection
