Sky Sports F1 is moving EPG slots on the Sky platform in what is a major reshuffle for the portfolio of channels.
The move, which will happen on August 12th, will see:
– 401 = Sky Sports News HQ (was 405)
– 402 = Sky Sports 1 (was 401)
– 403 = Sky Sports 2 (was 402)
– 404 = Sky Sports 3 (was 403)
– 405 = Sky Sports 4 (was 404)
– 406 = Sky Sports 5 (new)
– 407 = Sky Sports F1 (was 406)
This seems like a lot of unnecessary changing for one new channel, if I’m going to be honest. F1’s viewing figures may be slightly affected, but I don’t anticipate any major knock in effects.
No word if Virgin Media will be following suite with a reshuffle (update – turns out it moved on Virgin last week). It means that this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix will be its last in the current EPG slot.
