Now the BBC has pretty much completed its SD to HD upgrade of its regional channels, today Sky tidied up the “BBC regions” section of the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG)
All the BBC regions are made available on the Sky EPG, up in the 900´s
tidies up the numbering, and removes gaps left by the closure of two BBC micro regions.
Obviously, your local BBC 1 region that you are allocated on Sky channels 101 will be missing from “BBC regions” section.
The changes happened automatically earlier today.
It also affects the BBC Red Button Channels, that used to be on Sky channel 981.
