    Hi and welcome,
    There are no changes that I am aware of.
    Sky2, Sky3, Sky Sports News, Sky Sports 4, most Sky Movie channels, Eurosport2, the Sky EPG on 117878 are all on the same North beam frequencies.
    These tend to be weakest around 5pm.
    To ensure your reception is best and the loss of these channels is kept to a minimum, it requires the dish to be aligned well, and for the lNB skew to be set correctly.
    The LNB skew is the angle of rotation, and even the smallest amount of turn can make a huge difference in reception.
    Ideally you need a decent satellite meter that can measure these frequencies and show then best skew. doing it yourself, manually, with a cheap beeper unit is not the way.
    And obviously the father south you go the more tricky it is to get these 24/7.
