    Sky High Definition EPG changes

    According to reports, from the 1st February 2011, Sky will be changing the channel line up on Sky HD boxes.

    Sky are reportably swapping the Standard Definition (SD) channel numbers with high definition (HD) channel numbers on 1 Feb 2011 for "residential viewers with an HD set top box and a subscription to one or more HD television channels distributed by Sky".

    So, for example:
    Sky1 HD will be listed at channel number 106 and Sky1 SD will be listed at channel number 170
    and probably (although not confirmed)
    401 Sky sports 1HD so sky sports 1sd moves to 408.
    402 Sky sports 2HD so sky sports 2sd moves to 409.
    403 Sky sports 3HD so sky sports 3sd moves to 418.
    404 Sky sports 4HD so sky sports 3sd moves to 454.
    405 Sky sportsNewsHD so sky sportsnews sd moves to 455.

    SOme more information:

    The new HD numbering system system is due to go live February 1 next year, but it is thought that they will be a period of time where both systems will be run, giving users a change to get used to the new HD numbering system before fully implimented.

    Sky hopes that the approach will ensure that Sky+ HD subscribers always make use of HD channels where they are available, rather than just watching SD versions.

    Sky customers will get access to the HD Swap Bouquet if they subscribe to at least one HD channel.
