Sky has decided to cancel the recent 'upgrade' to their standard Sky+HD STB homepage known as R016, notified here.

Some people had illogically complained that they couldn't "read the buttons" on the R015 version . . . obviously not realising that they are supposed to be icons: you didn't have to be able to read the text in the pictures:

I did think that R016 (no pics available) was a retrograde step (reverting the top half of the homepage to the large icons of a previous version). Fortunately Sky have seen sense.

I think most of the R016 changes were to do with the homepage and the Top Picks carousel.

I think this is an R016 shot:

This appears to be another one:

There was a third one that I saw on skyepginfo but I can't find that at the moment. If the Google cache is anything to go by there was a big multipage thread on the Sky Community forums that had images and discussion about R016 but that appears to have totally disappeared and wasn't around long enough for Google to cache it.

There were three different TopPicks layouts on R016 that were trialed publicly, the images of them are still available here:

I don't know if this post should warrant a own thread but according to Digital Spy Forums, Sky Living's Facebook and Twitter pages have stopped updated and Sky Living promos on the other Sky channels have also stopped. The channel is heading the same path that killed the Trouble channel and almost Challenge.

Considering Sky 1, Living and Atlantic don't really have clearly defined boundaries, especially since Living shifted into a more generic drama channel, I wouldn't be surprised (or too sad for that matter) if it disappeared as the shows fit in on the other two channels. Trouble and Bravo could arguably still fill a hole in today's landscape more so than Living could, although Bravo would be facing stiff competition from Dave and I have no idea where Trouble would source its programming.
