Prime PLUS 1 coming in February

SKY will offer a Prime PLUS 1 channel from 6am on Wednesday February 1. Prime PLUS 1 will be available to all SKY Domestic customers with the Basic package at no extra cost.

Prime PLUS 1 is a duplicate feed of the existing Prime channel with all programmes screening one hour later than the original broadcast. It will be available in SD (standard definition) on SKY channel 514.

Programmes with closed captions on the existing Prime channel will have closed captions on Prime PLUS 1 for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers. The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) will also be available as normal.

As Prime PLUS 1 is a digitally broadcast channel, Freeview Satellite customers (Freeview DTH, or Direct To Home transmission only) will also be able to manually tune their receiver to view the channel.
