Motors TV is no longer available to access via the Sky Guide.

Motors TV

Previously available on Sky channel 447, the removal of the channel on Sky came without prior warning to viewers.

According to Sky, this “is a decision made by Motors TV not to show on our platform any more.”

Some have speculated that this is something to do with Sky’s EPG changes, or that Motors TV have sold their  EPG slot to another channel. With this in mind, Motors TV could return to Sky, but on a different channel number.

However, Motors TV is still broadcasting, and you can add it to your Sky digboxes other channels list using the Add Channels option in the services menu.

Motors TV Frequency.

11082 H
DVB-S
SR 22000
FEC 5/6

Note that the channel is still “free to view” and requires either a non-subscription “Free to View” / “Freesatfromsky”or subscription a sky viewing card to view.

  1. sky could not gave a shit

    • Considering it was FTV, and not part of any Sky subscription package, not exactly huge viewing figures, Sky were not making much money from it anyway, just from the EPG and encryption charges.

      The number of FTV channels is reducing, so much so that you can see this service ending and channel going FTA or subscription.

  2. And today it has returned on the same channel number, on Sky channel 447.

  3. The bandwidth costs may start off lower but if there are sufficiently large numbers of viewers the costs, including additional infrastructure required, will increase. There ll be a cross-over at which the multiplex space is cheaper. The move to OTA looked like a sign that point had been reached. The change back to streaming only doesn t bode well.
