Hehe ... I can provide just that hack. Although it is actually to the 
channel_ids file. The Radiotimes data includes the +1 channels and also 
Sky-Three, ITV4 but the grabber isn't aware of them yet.

I've invented xmltv ids for these channels and they may be overwritten/changed 
if you later update xmltv, so be aware!

Add the following to the /usr/share/xmltv/tv_grab_uk_rt/channel_ids file:
sky-three.sky.com:1963:Sky Three

Of course the corresponding xmltvids to myth and the source xmltv file in 
your .mythtv directory. Which reminds me of how overcomplicated this whole 
system actually is!

If you want to add further recently launched channels then checkout:

Then plug in the ID and a made-up xmltvid to the channel_ids file etc
