      Sky themselves are stating that the roll-out will be "starting in the next couple of weeks".

      Another new one?

      The current one isn't very old.

      Anyone know what improvements / changes are coming?

      It was all in the Press release back in Jan 30th.

      A new look for Sky

      Notice someone on sky community forum has said 'I can confirm that this will be available on DR Stream'.
      Not sure if that means now or soon.

      New EPG software usually appears on the DR stream a few weeks into the rollout, also a couple of weeks in Sky time is not always the same as a couple of weeks calander time

      Yes that always seems to be the case with the DR stream.

      One thing I wish this new epg would have, is that when you don't subscribe to Sky Movies, it removes that from all the searches, showcase, on demand, tvguide etc.
      It really is annoying and seems to get priority. I see there is a home page link to Sky Movies on those screenshots.

      Will this home page come up when you click play button or the tvguide button?
      I always use the play button and navigate from there, when I use the remote and not sky+

      I think that these were the changes that were being discussed at the end of January/early February elsewhere in the forum.
      I can't find the article but it referred to an article in "Sky Views":

      I assume the tvguide button.
      I guess we'll have to wait for the rollout to find what the play button does.
