Glo: Hi, Glo. Sky News is on the multiplex called COM5. To receive COM5, we need to know which transmitter you are using so that we can tell you which UHF tv channel number you need to MANUALLY tune into to add Sky News to your EPG. If you don't know the name of your transmitter, then give us the first part of your postcode or the complete postcode of a very close by shop garage or similar location. once we've worked out your transmitter , we can give you the UHF channel number you need.

Sheila: Sky News has moved to channel 233 as part of a reshuffle of channel numbers a couple of months ago (news, kids and adult channels all moved to new number ranges).

Burns .: At your location you should be able to get good reception of both Sutton Coldfield and The Wrekin. Can you receive Pick on channel 11 and Dave on channel 12?
