They have already added some channels, although not all are available to subscribers yet. There is a Documentry channel which started yesterday (CH49) and they have added move PPV channels to allow movies to be started at half hr intervals. PPVs are not channel 61-74.

I understand that they had not intended firing up anymore transponders till D1 was in service due to B1 not having spare capacity, but as many other users (Aus TV Network backhaul users) have abandoned B1 due to its illness Sky is able to start testnig its new transmissions early on now spare B1 capacity. Guess they had to do something as D1 was delayed a few weeks.

Channel 999 is just a test channel from Optus C1. It just tests that your reception of C1 and will only work if you have a dual orbit mono block LNB (dual throate one). All other channels on C1 are encrypted or on the Aus beam, this is the only readily viewable test card (from Optu's Auruoa Service) that can be recieved in NZ.
