They’re giving two weeks’ notice through a pop-up channel on EPG 100 from Tuesday.

That didn't happen . . . Shocked I guess there is still some horse-trading going on.

It looks as though you just got the wrong Tuesday, MGR, as the pop-up channel has appeared today, which means Sky Atlantic is pushed off the first page of the EPG.

Curiously, I don't have it - nor the alternate version on 997.

Jimbo over at the Digital Spy forums says that pop-up channels will not be returning, according to Sky's viewer relations department.

It's still possible that the removal today was unplanned, but so is its return to the EPG it seems.

Viceland don't seem to be getting it quite right. The EPG listing says to re set-up series links on their new channel number from Tuesday, which you're not able to do because they're not listing any programmes. If they were to just list programmes instead there would be no issue - series links won't be broken by the changes.

The promo is now available on the Home tab of the Sky Q EPG (“Your TV Guide is changing” - I thought it was about the new Sky Q EPG at first). Interestingly it is the U.K. version of the promo, even though an Irish version was made.

Indeed, what an odd thing to do . . .

I understand that they are changing their name to just 'VICE', but doesn't the EPG work on the basis of the SID/VPID for the channel programme information/series links? A name change wouldn't alter that, would it?

Surely they won't be changing for any of the channels involved in the reshuffle, which is why Sky are stating that all planned recording and favourites will be adjusted automatically.

Furthermore, it also looks as though they're moving DOWN the EPG. They haven't done well out of this reshuffle - unless they got a 'pretty penny' from Viacom for give their existing slot to 5Select.

The reason that’s happened is that the HD version is closing. If you check the SD version, programme listings continue after 1st May. It’s rumoured that Sky have ended their “involvement” in the channel.

I think it isn't surprising to see Viceland lose its HD channel. For Sky exclusivity, it got very little out of it with abysmal ratings, sometimes even hitting the dreaded zero mark. And dropping to 183 is not a good deal for them, too.

It's a shame, considering that it filled a few niches in British television, such as anime programming.
