Bloomberg axes SD channel on Sky

Business channel Bloomberg is ceasing standard definition distribution via satellite, becoming HD only.

Bloomberg's SD channel on Sky is due to be closed on Thursday, leaving only the HD version of the channel, which HD users should already see on channel 502.

Viewers with an old Sky SD box will lose access to the channel.

The standard definition version of Bloomberg has already been axed from Freesat in favour of the HD channel.

Bloomberg HD officially launched in the UK and Ireland in March 2017 via the Astra 2 satellite system. Bloomberg's standard definition channel continues on Astra 1 (19.2E) for viewers with a European satellite system.
