The channel began broadcasting on October 3, 1994[1] from the Astra 1C satellite on weekdays between 8am and 12pm. It was soon changed to 12pm and 4pm. In 1997, it moved to Astra 1B and was broadcast between 11am and 4pm. Due to poor viewing figures and failure to outreach with Sky Digital, Sky Soap ceased transmission on 30 April 1999.
