UK radio stations removed from Sky EPG in Ireland

Almost 30 UK radio stations have been removed from the Sky EPG in Ireland this week due to Brexit.

Stations will need to hold a separate licence to be listed in the Republic if they wish to continue on the platform from January.

The changes happened on Monday this week and affect 28 stations including those owned by Bauer, Global and Wireless in the UK. Services by RTÉ and the BBC are unaffected.

The channels are still available for manual tuning but cannot legally be listed in the Sky EPG without the extra paperwork.
