Sky to reshuffle Asian channels in August
Sky to reshuffle Asian channels in August

In an effort to fill gaps and make further room for new services, BSkyB has decided to reshuffle its EPG listings in various genres including Asian TV channels, from August.

Starting Tuesday 19th August, many broadcasting giants including Sony MAX, Lamhe, PTC Punjabi, Rishtey, Colors, Geo News, Hum Europe amongst others will have new channel numbers. No doubt, the changes will result in many channels spending bucket loads to market their new positioning to avoid losing viewers. Channels will begin promoting their new EPG numbers later this month.

As well as the International category (as listed below), other categories on Sky will also be undergoing changes including ‘Entertainment’, ‘Religion’, ‘Shopping’ and ‘Lifestyle’.

BizAsia has exclusively obtained the list of new channel numbering, see below:
