Sky channel numbers to change

Related

Important news for the television remote wrangler in your household - Sky is changing its channel numbering.

From May, general entertainment and lifestyle shows will be from channel one to 29, movies will start from channel 30, sport will start at 50, and music will begin at channel 100.

Sky Network Television chief executive, John Fellet, says the decision to make the changes wasn't taken lightly.

He says they want to group channels by genre, and allow channel space for special events.
