PRIME, BRAVO plus 1 & THE EDGE TV

SKY has combined 3 regional broadcasts for PRIME into 1 national broadcast on satellite.

As part of this change, PRIME, Bravo plus 1 and THE EDGE TV is now transmitted from a new transponder frequency from 21st June.

If you're no longer seeing these channels, please update your satellite device manually to keep watching all of those channels; see here for instructions from manufacturers of approved satellite devices.  

Once you've successfully updated your device, you'll be able to watch PRIME, Bravo plus 1 and THE EDGE TV again without interruptions, subscription-free!

HOW DOES THIS AFFECT ME?

USING a SATELLITE DISH Most Freeview approved satellite receivers / recorders / hybrid TVs will automatically update to the new channels over night; however as the satellite service is transmitting from a new Sky TV transponder, some devices may require a manual scan.  

This does not affect viewers who are watching Freeview using a UHF aerial.

LET'S GET STARTED!

These instructions have been compiled to help you scan in PRIME, Bravo plus 1 and THE EDGE TV.  They work if you use a satellite dish and have an approved satellite box, recorder or hybrid TV.

IMPORTANT!  If you have series links or programmes booked for recording - please note that you will need to rebook those recordings after this update.

Select your device brand below for instructions from the manufacturer.

CAN'T FIND YOUR RECEIVER BRAND?

It's probably unapproved.

Unapproved receivers / recorders will not automatically update, and as we don't have readily available instructions for those, please contact the distributor or manufacturer on how to update.  

Please search in the following forum for your device or ask a question relating to it.  

For a better experience, go for an APPROVED PRODUCT. see here for more information and browse approved products here.
