Sky Sci-Fi, E4 Extra, Pick, Challenge and E! are moving to new channel numbers on Sky satellite. The channel reshuffle takes place on Tuesday 27th September 2022.
Entertainment channel E! is demoted down to channel 159, while E4 Extra, Sky Sci-Fi, Pick and Challenge move up the channel list.
Sky Sci-Fi, which replaced Syfy this summer, moves up 13 slots on the channel list in the reshuffle. As a result, the channel will leapfrog rival sci-fi and fantasy channel Legend, which is on 148.
The changes are possible because of Channel 4 HD is moving to channel 104 across all of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Tuesday. In Wales Channel 4 HD moves to channel 108. This frees up channel 138 and triggers a chain of changes further down the channel list.
- 138 E4 Extra (moves from channel 139)
- 139 Sky Sci-Fi (moves from channel 152)
- 151 Pick (moves from channel 159)
- 152 Challenge (moves from channel 160)
- 159 E! (moves down from channel 151)
The above changes do not apply to Sky Glass/ Puck viewers.
