On one of our TV's that has not been used for a while I was checking it and discovered all the Sky Basic Channels are listed in the Guide and Channel list. The TV is a Samsung that is using its internal  tuner and pointing to Mt Kaukau. The Sky channels list after BaseFM starting with the channel number 106~up. If I click on a channel listing I get a low or no signal error.


This TV has never been connected to Sky and we are not using any devices that transmit Sky internally. Any ideas as to what is going on here or is my TV haunted

My TV found all the igloo channels when I scanned Freeview once which I suspect is what you are finding

I forgot about Igloo, Sky are probably using these as frequency holders

I've seen that on my Samsung TV too. I believe @DJShadow is correct - it's the old Igloo channels.
