Some Sky TV users get major BBC channel boost today

If you have Sky TV, you could be getting a major boost today, thanks to the arrival of 19 additional HD channels from BBC. Sky Glass and Sky Stream, two of Sky’s streaming devices, will now offer many of BBC’s regional channels regardless of where you live. Previously, if you lived in London for example, you could not watch BBC’s channel covering Scotland via Sky TV, even though you could do so on some platforms including Freesat and Sky Q.

These regional channels have largely similar programming to the main versions of BBC One and BBC Two, with the key difference being the local news programmes, which air at 6.30 PM. 

For Sky TV users, your “true” BBC One HD regional version will continue to remain on Sky Channel 101, so you don’t have to spend too long searching for it. 

But if you’re interested in watching a BBC regional channel from a different part of the country, you can find it on channels 951 and up, according to Cordbusters UK.
