The service channel number 100 has retained its position. Also the number of user defined favourite channels has been increased from the current 50 to 100. A user will now have to manually set the favourite channels again as favourites are linked to the channel number and not the actual channel itself. For example if you had added colors channel which is on location number 120 to your favourites and after the reshuffle it moved to location number 149 then the channel which will be in your favourites list is Life OK HD which is the new channel which took up location 120.
