rogerv, well done for tuning in. You caught the 'New Americana' new country show. There are several specialist music shows on Caroline including: Good Rockin' Tonight (Old Rock & Roll) Fridays 7-10pm CET; Barry James Golden Oldies Tuesdays 10pm-1am; Dance On A Volcano (Progressive Rock) Thursdays 10pm-1am; John Patrick's Hard Rock Show - Fridays 10pm-1am; & New Americana - New Country Thursdays 7pm-1am; otherwise its that (un)usual mix of classic & new album tracks the rest of the time.

The easiest way to get back to your Sky EPG menu after listening to Caroline is to press 'services' then 'back up'.

Hi Admin, apologies, typo error, I have corrected Email.

Mark,

I got Caroline tuned in last night and there was a lot of Country music. Also what is the easiest way to get back to the Sky EPG menu of channels.

Hi rogerv,

Sky Digital put up the price of participating on the EPG by almost 3x at the end of last year. Many radio and tv stations complained, and the Caroline chiefs felt the price was too high. We are FTA (Free To Air) which means that you do not need a Sky viewing card or a digibox to receive us. Any digital satellite receiver pointed at 28 degrees east will receive our programmes. It was decided for now to use available funds to maintain the Hotbird 13° East channel to serve our many fans throughout Europe who are not pointed at Sky, which carries channels primarily for a UK audience.

Whilst we aim to eventually be on the EPG, Caroline is gaining substantial publicity for our new Sky channel and response has been terrific after just one week of testing.
