P Pierce: All 4 is a catchup/on demand service which is available as an app on various TV, boxes and sticks rather than a channel. It won't be on a Sky+/HD box as those don't support apps. If you have Sky Q or Sky Glass it should be found under the Apps heading somewhere if it is available.

Chris: This page has listings for Freeview starting from channel 1, there are no channels numbered below 100 on Sky or Freesat. BBC Scotland is on Freeview channel 9 in SD and HD on 108 from transmitters which carry the BBC One Scotland region (it is not broadcast from transmitters covering England, Wales or Northern Ireland).

Chris:

I suspect that you may have inadvertently not scrolled down the page far enough. The HD channels are listed first, and their numbering starts at 101 on Freeview.
SD numbering on Freeview (further down the page) starts from 1.
The channels are listed in Alphabetical order although that can change with the options.
