I think the service id only really differs with a regional station, while the
national ones stay the same. BBC has regional variations, but for most the
only difference is the 'local' news. ITV1 also has a different service id
from that listed, but again there are regional differences. Sky News, TMF,
BBC News24 & CBeebies all match those listed, but there are no regional
differences for those stations. If you looked across the country, I'd be very
surprised if any service id was re-used for a different station.
