skynews arabia might replace abu dahbi tv,
Seems plausible as Sky News Arabia has its headquarters in Abu Dhabi and is a joint venture with Abu Dhabi's Media Investment Corporation. We shall see...

There is no 8353 channel now - it was only there for one hour or so!

However, there are now 24 Sky Vegas/game services on 10.921 H, and all have moved from 10.744 H.

Isn't 12051V in the 2C sub-band so presumably migrating to 1N?

No. the sub-band ha nothing to do with it. 12.051 V will reamin as it is. Astra 1N is on frequencies 10.714 H to 11.186 V only - 32 transpondes.

S4C currently broadcasts on 12.129 V and this will almost certainly be switched off now. So it will be interesting to be seen what will be put on 12.129 V - it would be nice to see more HD services start but currently there is not.

RR - which reminds me

12.363 V - you deleted 3838 from the test channel list last week - it is still there carrying Sky Sports F1 HD. 3837 is still at no signal

My Sky Digibox has already moved Movies4Men 2 and Movies4Men 2 +1 to channels 323 and 324, ahead of Sony Movie Channel's launch tomorrow.

Has anybody else received these changes?

My HD boxes are both receiving Movies4Men 2 and Movies4Men2 +1 channels 323 and 324 too. Normally channel changes like this are global so every box gets them at the same time, or a reboot puts them in the right order.

According to The Real Digital Facebook webpage, one poster is claiming that wilkipedia the free library is saying that Real Digital is defunct having had no satellite signal since March after saying it would be back with a signal after 7 days and he is asking Real Digital for clarification if it's true.

I do not know about the Signal but the Real Digital News page is still saying that the Signal is still down due to Technical Reasons, I will find out what is happening on Friday,
they were meant to swap Signals around the end of March I think

Here is the Link to that page http://www.realdigitaltv.com/entry010_maintenance.html
