Sky Christian Channels

Here's a list of the Christian channels currently available on Sky.
Please note: If a channel is listed here it does not imply that we endorse it. We believe that much that is broadcast is not culturally appropriate to the majority of viewers in the UK. Our personal view is that, on the whole, the radio channels are more inspiring and relevant than many TV channels.
For details of the few Christian channels on BBC/ITV's Freesat, go to our BBC/ITV's Freesat page.

What is the Sky Electronic Programme Guide (EPG)?

The ‘EPG’ is the channel numbering for all Sky channels. Sometimes called the 'Sky guide', it also gives a seven day programme schedule via the TV.
Any Sky digibox is automatically tuned to all channels on the Sky EPG. When a new channel is added, every Sky digibox is updated by a signal sent via satellite. The EPG includes both Free-to-Air and subscription channels. Free-to-Air broadcasters, like the BBC, ITV and Christian stations, pay Sky to put them on its EPG.

A non-Sky box will not ‘see’ (receive) the Sky EPG, so you have to manually tune in your own choice of channels. Frequencies are changed from time to time so you'll have to manually re-tune if one of the channels you watch has changed. This is an important point to consider when choosing between a Sky and a non-Sky system.
