Sky entertainment channels get on-screen revamp


Sky's entertainment channels have become the latest Sky services to receive a new look, as part of a broadcaster-wide revamp of presentation and content.

From today, Sky 1 is once again identified as 'Sky One' and joins Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts and Sky Living with a brand new on-screen look and feel.

It follows a major investment in Sky One to feature more homegrown content, with more comedy and comedy drama in the channel's key 9pm and 10pm slots. In addition to the newly launched The Russell Howard Hour, Sky One's highlights this autumn include comedy thriller Bounty Hunters starring Jack Whitehall and Oscar nominee, Rosie Perez; and Sick Note - Rupert Grint and Nick Frost’s tale of a terrible lie that spirals out of control. New comedy from Romesh Ranganathan is also in the pipeline.

As part of the changes, Sky Two has also had a basic revamp to fit in with the new look, although Sky hasn't indicated what it intends to do with the largely forgotten channel in the longer term.

The changes to Sky's entertainment channels follows the revamp of Sky Sports over the summer, and is ahead of similar on-screen changes to Sky Cinema and Sky News in the coming weeks.
