Re: Sky One to close

I think Sky Showcase will be a waste of space personally, but Sky must think that there are a lot of people out there who miss programmes because they don’t buy listings magazines and don’t go much further down on their EPGs than the first page.

Hence the reason for the scramble to get channels on the lowest possible numbers on the EPG.

I agree, it's certainly a waste, in my opinion, using it for Max content. That's going to be right next to Showcase in the Sky EPG if I remember correctly.

Unless they know Sky Max is getting a poor position on other platforms EPGs, of course, then it's more understandable.

Yeah, I got it wrong. Oops.


I blame that they wrote it like this on their press release.
"Sky Showcase – 106
Sky Max - 113
Sky Witness – 107
Sky Atlantic – 108
Sky Comedy - 114
Sky Documentaries - 121
Sky Crime - 122
Sky History - 123
Sky Nature - 124
Sky Arts - 130
Sky Kids (on-Demand)
E! – 151
SyFy - 152"

Re: Sky One to close

I don't know why it's listed like that either doesn't make much sense.

I take they aren't simulcasting say FBI/FBI Most Wanted, Law and Order: Organized Crime and The Equalizer because it's next to Showcase on the EPG unlike SWAT which they're simulcasting.

Not sure about the whole series but Code 404 is on both Sky Showcase and Sky Comedy at the same time on 1st of September.

Well with Prodigal Son being axed, lest hope that Martin Sheen becomes the New Doctor Who.

Really to the person watching it's new and not a repeat . Didn't even know that "how to get away with murder" , was being "repeated" on Netflix for quite some time . Guess that means that EVERY show that is imported ie . most of sky witness are repeats as they have broadcast before .

Re: Sky One to close

So you wouldn't for example class something like The Rookie airing on Pick or Fringe on Syfy/Pick as repeats ?

If I haven’t seen it, I don’t want to see it. I wouldn’t have failed to record or bookmark it had it been worth watching.

If we are being sensible, a repeat is a programme that has already been aired in this country.

But if l saw it in the US then in the UK it's a repeat to me . it is just being repeated on a different TV channel .Again bear in mind that some people do not have all channels again it would not be repeat for them. So l repeat it's depends on if you have seen it before , no matter were.
