Music TV - Sky v Freesat: How the two platforms compare

Music TV channels are booming on Freesat. During April, VIVA, The Box, Heat, Kiss, Kerrang, Magic and Smash Hits have been added to the free-to-air satellite platform. These channels were originally part of Sky's Entertainment Extra subscription package. 

However, Channel AKA was taken off Freesat's channel list, but is still available free-to-air on satellite.

Following the changes, how does Sky's music TV offering now compare with Freesat's?
