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. ( )

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.
