I've got the impression the comedies on Sky Atlantic have underperformed for them, people perceive it as a drama channel. I think they are moving some comedies from Sky1 too. The American ones, the British comedies will stay on Sky1.

Given Universal is closing, I can't see VM not getting Sky Comedy.

It would be a good idea to scrap the channel the only thing that was a game of thrones I dont think HBO will happy that it will stay an exclusive to sky for ever it'll soon put it out to syndication to the high bidder!....

it was a strange policy wasnt it. "ooh we have this exclusive channel no one else does" it led to a lot more piracy for GOT to be honest. plus the advert money for sky was reduced from what ive heard due to the low numbers.

could this be sky saying "oh look we're still not giving you sky atlantic!! you didnt win!!! but have this channel which a lot of the programmes are now on.........."

I got Universal mixed up with Discovery. Sorry.

As for SYFY... I hope Sky decides to keep it...

Quote:
Sky has largely taken operational control of NBCU’s UK channels (e.g. Universal TV, Syfy UK etc.) and thus you can find many related TV shows on Sky’s own channels, such as Sky Witness, although this in turn means that Universal is ceasing on other platforms.

Its definitely a strange policy, GOT was the most pirated program ever, who knows what Got revenue they would have got for being on channel 4 or even Sky 1...

They did show Season 1 of GoT on Sky1 as a rerun just before Season 2. That's how I first saw the show. Then I watched via LoveFilm rentals for several seasons.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

I'm looking forward to the Sky UHD content to kick in.
Does anyone know when the deal is due to start?

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2020)

According to JJ20X on Forumbox, MTV Classic and La Liga TV are showing on the network. Given their locations on the network he thinks they are in testing.

In regards to Sky Atlantic I expect nothing and nothing is what we get.

HBO must be very happy with their arrangement with Sky as they've recently extended the deal.

Sky announced an extension of its "multi-year programming partnership" with HBO in October 2019, "meaning Sky and NOW TV customers will be able to enjoy award-winning content from HBO and Warner Bros. ... for many years to come," according to the Sky press release.
