Channel 61 on Sky - Promo for MTV Classic has started.

Full schedule starts 5pm Wed June 1.

APSAT TV website says that ESPN HD has started (I can't verify as I just have the basic Sky decoder).
Not sure whether it's carrying shows, or a promo loop, or a test pattern.

details from http://www.apsattv.com/
MTV Classic  -  D1 12421
ESPN HD - D1 12267

Hmm.. has there been any chatter about other HD channels coming to Sky?

On the other hand, maybe this is for 3D testing before the World Cup?  (seems awfully early if it is..)
