Earlier this week, a number of Sky pay channels, that were on the aging Astra 2A satellite, were moved to the Astra 2E satellite.

This is presumably as Astra 2A is nearing the end of its useful life.

This was a straight swap of channels form one satellite to another.

Channels have stayed on the same frequencies, so no changes are required by anyone- even though Sky digiboxes would make the changes automatically anyway!

Viewers in Spain may notice that some channels, that were previously on Astra 2As north beam and used to be unavailable mid to late afternoon, may not be available all day, now they are on Astra 2Es European beam.

 

 

The list of channels affected are listed below (data from the kingosat.com)

Further to this recent post (https://satandpcguy.com/blog/2013/01/more-information-on-sky-tv-channels-moving-satellites-and-loss-of-channels-in-some-fringe-reception-areas ), here is a complete list of channels that have moved from Astra 2B satellite to the Astra 1N satellite.
In some areas of Spain reception of some channels will have improved, as the channels used to be on a “weaker” Astra 2B south North beam signal, are now on a relatively “stronger” signal.
