Whatever its faults, this channel is not immaterial.

Intrestingly syfyuk facebook page has changed it's name to Skytv, i believe some on here mentioned they thought SYFY will changed to a SKY branded channel? They might be correct.

They changed the Sky1 Twitter account to SkyTV about a month or two ago. They seem to have abandoned the other Twitter accounts and are consolidating all the TV ones on one account. So I wouldn't read into it too much, they'll be doing the same on each Social Media platform.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

Sky Arts looks like it will be set to become a free to air service and join Freeview according to Broadcast.
They are seeking capacity but if this is unsuccessful it may replace Pick or Challenge.
It will likely drop down to the lowest pack on Virgin when this happens

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

LATEST: Media Boy HQ gets updates from Media Boy Sources.

Look like that SYFY has been saved from the axe going forward BUT we have seen uncofirmed reports by Media Boy Sources that Sky is set to change from SYFY to Sky Syfy.

However our sources think Nat Geo and Nat Geo Wild may close in future.

Media Boy HQ now thinks that the following may happen:

-Pick TV and Blaze will become one called Pick TV
-Blaze slot on Freeview will be reuse for Sky Arts to launch on Freeview

Id be quite happy with that, MB. Nice to see Sky wanting to give Freeview another chance.

Would these channels be closing due to poor viewing figures?

Their viewing figures aren't amazing, last time I looked, NGWild in particular, so it's quite possible they may close. They are still actively advertising new series launches so it may not happen for a while.

National Geographic channels are now part of Disney and their content is apparently on the new Disney+ service, so they may decide to go exclusively via that and cut the costs of running linear channels.
