Background
EDML, the broadcaster of Teachers TV, states that Sky is proposing to move Teachers TV from its current position in the Documentaries genre of Sky's EPG into the Specalist genre, and that Teachers TV will be allocated a new EPG listing number accordingly.

EDML alleges that Sky's proposed repositioning of Teachers TV in the EPG constitutes a breach of Sky's obligations under the EPG Code.

Ofcom is considering EDML's allegations.
