i thought if they were going to do that then "FOUR" would move from Ch. 12 to Ch. 4 and then "PRIME" would take Ch. 10, so it would match FreeView and be less confusing for older people. lol.

But yeah, no new channels, and i doubt theres any on their way..... wonder if we'll ever get a Channel 13??

Yeah..  it is a bit weird.  

The most logical reason would be to move Prime to 10 to match Freeview - but who knows?

Maybe they're bringing back Fashion TV? (just kidding)

Still... that's probably more likely than 10 becoming home to a Sci Fi channel...

Channel 13 = horror channel? At work all the main doors are numbered for the security system and the one to go onto the roof is 13...

Not a chance it gets renumbered to match Freeview, why make it easy for customers? But why did Freeview not follow Sky numbering? Or better, let customers renumber channels themselves and shuffle it the way they watch Sky.

Freeview - 4 = Four

Sky - 4 = Prime


Freeview makes more sense.

I would have thought that 4 = Prime because the want the channel they own to be close to the other FTA big boys.
