Noticed a scrolling message going across
the bottom of the Sky UK feed this morning, underneath the Aussie ticker. Says "this channel is migrating and will no longer be available on this old frequency after 30th April. Please coordinate with your distributor to avail uninterrupted service".

So I'm guessing that Sky were supposed to migrate to the new feed by now - bit sloppy waiting until that message came up but typical of Sky NZ. Can anybody confirm whether Sky NZ actually are across this? Would suck if they just stopped showing the UK bulletins.

Sky News is a 100% feed through from Foxtel North Ryde, so I guess its Foxtel to sort out, but would suggest they are unlikely to let it fall over, someone will have a change plan in hand, it also may not actually apply to the Oceania feed.

Do you happen to know where the 4:3 center cut of the UK feed is occuring? My understanding was their feed from the UK was 16:9, it's rather annoying having to watch it in 4:3!
