Just did a rescan in MediaPortal and it's picked up a channel called Fonterra which is encrypted but seems to be accessible on my subscription and is showing the style channel.

Other than Comedy Central coming in April I haven't seen any other channels being advertised and with a channel name like Fonterra I wonder if sky is looking at something other than just another channel launch.

Anyone know anything?

This is probably intended for a one-off transmission for Fonterra for their business purposes, e.g. transmitting an AGM. The Fashion TV content is up there for testing because it doesn't hurt the engineers' eyes :-)

Being a Fonterra employee, I know.

Fonterra uses the Sky channel to announce forecast milk payout changes to farmers and staff.  Simple as that really. :)
