Sky Arts: 2 become 1 on channel 121

Sky is to consolidate its two arts channels into one from June, with the combined Sky Arts channel moving to a new, higher position on Sky's channel list.

Sky Arts has confirmed that the changes will happen on 9th June, the same date Sky 3D will be removed from satellite (see Sky 3D goes on-demand only, from Monday).

As part of the merger of Sky Arts 1 and 2 into a single channel, the service will have a 10% budget increase.

The channel will move to Sky 2's current slot - channel 121 - on Sky's Electronic Programme Guide. Sky Arts currently broadcasts on channels 129 and 130.

Sky Arts 2 has a lower reach than Sky Arts 1; it's notably absent from Sky's streaming service Now TV.
