Listed below are the channel numbers in the Sky satellite EPG (electronic programme guide) for all available BBC TV channels and radio stations.

On the 26 March 2013 we’ll be changing our EPG positions on Sky at the same time as launching BBC Two HD. The table below reflects the new channel numbers. (http://satandpcguy.com/blog/2013/03/bbc-2-hd-launch-details-and-new-channel-numbers-for-bbc-one-hd/ )

BBC One HD will be 141 (was 143)
BBC Two HD will be 142 (BBC HD was 169)
BBC ALBA will be 143 (was 168)

If you have a Sky set-top box but don’t have an active viewing card, you will receive BBC One London on channel 101 and BBC Two England on 102. This is because the receiver has no way of establishing where in the UK it is located and automatically defaults to these two channels.

BBC TV channels Sky EPG no.

Further to the news that the BBC HD Channel will be closing, and being replaced by BBC Two HD (http://satandpcguy.com/blog/2013/02/bbc-2-hd-to-launch-in-march-2013/) the BBC have released further details for the launch of BBC Two HD.

BBC Two HD

BBC Two HD

BBC Two HD will launch at 6am on Tuesday 26 March 2013.

In most cases, BBC Two HD will use the same channel number as BBC HD.

However, Sky HD viewers will see that we are moving to two new numbers, which allows us to put BBC One HD and BBC Two HD next to each other. (We will also move BBC Alba to 143 on Sky so that it is grouped with other BBC channels.)

  BBC One HD  BBC Two HD 
Freeview HD / YouView 101 102
Sky HD 141 142
Virgin Media 108 187
Freesat HD 108 109

 

BBC One HD, currently on Sky channel 143, will move to Sky channel 141.

BBC Two HD, currently the BBC HD Channel on Sky channel 169, will move to Sky channel 142.

BBC Alba, currently Sky channel 168, will move to Sky channel 143.

Late in 2012, the BBC launched the first national variants of BBC One HD starting with Northern Ireland on 24 October 2012

This is the first rgional variation available after the BBC One England HD.

Now two more BBC One HD regional variations will be launched soon.

BBC One Scotland HD will launch on Monday 14 January 2013 on Freeview HD, Sky HD, Virgin Media, Freesat HD and YouView

BBC One Wales HD will launch on Tuesday 29 January on Freeview HD, Sky HD, Virgin Media, Freesat HD and YouView.

BBC One Scotland HD and BBC One Wales HD will take over from BBC One HD in the electronic programme guide (EPG) for viewers in Scotland and Wales on the date of launch so these are the channel numbers where you will find them:

BBC One England HD / BBC One Scotland HD / BBC One Wales HD / BBC One Northern Ireland HD

Freeview HD /YouView 101

Sky HD 143

Virgin Media 108

Freesat HD 108

Users shouldn’t have to do anything to start receiving the new services. If you live in Scotland or Wales you should just see your new version of BBC One HD appear on the current BBC One HD channel number.

And BBC HD will become BBC Two HD, “a few months’ time.”
