    I knew Sky Arts was coming to Freeview but dose that mean that Pick is closing or is it moving channel numbers.
    The HD version of Sky Arts is staying on the Now TV app.

    The sad thing is that when I first subscribed to the TalkTalk boost a few years ago specifically to be able to watch Sky Arts I was quite excited.
    But it's massively over-hyped by Sky and really quite disappointing.
    Not surprising that they're giving it away for nothing.  ;)

    I hope that in bringing the Arts to a wider audience to the Freeview community Sky will show a commitment to providing the necessary data to enable accurate recording to occur or will they choose not to bother. Is there any indication of their intention here ?

    Just for clarification, from 17 Sep 20.

    LCN 11 - Sky Arts
    LCN 34 - Pick

    Personally I think Sky Arts is a great channel and I think it will be a brilliant addition to FreeView which is generally poor, outside the PSB’s, in comparison to Pay TV, obviously there are many exceptions to this.
