An adult channel has attempted to sell its slot on the Sky electronic programme guide through the Digital Spy forums.

Babe Central launched on channel 953 in July last year but closed in February. It was a first foray into broadcasting for operating company Pole Central.

Manager Fiona Lam said the company now had no use for its slot and did not know where to turn to sell it.

"You can't just go to Sky," she said. "They said, 'Find your own buyer,' we didn't know where to go."

The forum post reflects the growing market in EPG slots since Sky stopped accepting new applications in the autumn.

Discovery recently paid 1.4m to take over channels 144 and 145 from broadcaster Cellcast.

A Sky spokesman said it had formalised the trading system when it stopped new applications, but that it was still down to the channel to find a buyer. When the trade is made details are confirmed with Sky.
