Food Network promoted up the Sky EPG


Discovery has promoted its newly acquired Food Network channel on Sky in the latest shuffle-up.

Food Network and Discovery Shed swap slots, demoting Discovery Shed to channel 197 and moving Food Network UK to channel 172. Food Network+1 moves to channel 272.

Discovery gained ownership over Food Networks earlier in the year following the acquisition of its owner Scripps Networks UK.

Channel reshuffles provide insight as to which channels in a company's portfolio are seen as being more important, as a higher ranking channel slot improves a channel's viability. Various studies have connected a good channel slot on Sky with improved reach and ratings.

Channel numbers on other platforms are not affected.
