How the change effect viewers
Sky (and fSfS) viewers will have the changes applied automatically.
Freesat viewers should find the changes happen automatically. If they do not, then power off and then on again your Freesat box.
If you have a generic free satellitereceiver, you will need to perform an automatic scan, or apply the above changes manually.
Virgin Media will make changes to their services in their network, no user action needs to be taken.
Freeview viewers are unaffected - Freeview has only one (compared to the now five satellite) interactive screens.
