Sunrise TV and Sunrise Radio have both been removed from the Sky Digital EPG line-up today.
Sunrise TV, which broadcasts free-to-air on channel 830 is showing ‘channel unavailable’ on screen. The same applies to Sunrise Radio, which has been a part of the Sky line-up since the launch on channel 0133.
It is currently not known the reason behind the sudden disappearance but in cases like this – it boils down to either a technical fault or a financial issue. The broadcaster has not given any explanation on the abrupt removal.
This is the latest change in a string of recent happenings at the Sunrise Radio Group. In the past year, Sunrise Radio and Punjabi Radio have ceased broadcasting in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Coventry. Sister station, Kismat Radio has also repositioned itself as a regional language station with emphasis on Gujarati, Punjabi, Urdu and Hindi programming. Youth station Buzz Asia became Buzz Radio last month.
Kismat Radio and Punjabi Radio remain unaffected on Sky Digital.
