Sky 1 to be supersized with home grown shows

Sky 1 is to become Sky's main home of home grown programming after it was announced that Sky Living will focus on US imports.

In a message to staff, Stuart Murphy director of Sky's entertainment channels, said:
“As part of a strategic realignment of the entertainment portfolio we have decided to supersize Sky 1, dramatically increasing the investment in home-grown shows on our main entertainment channel. 
"The majority of home-grown shows on Sky Living will move over to our main entertainment channel ..., with Sky Living focusing almost exclusively on US dramas going forward."

 The changes are due to start from summer 2015.

Sky will be releasing its latest quarterly financial update on Tuesday 21st April; these updates often contain nuggets of information as to what Sky is planning to change or launch in the future.

Correction: Sky's financial results will be published Tuesday 21st April. The above article has been corrected.


  1. "...Sky Living focusing almost exclusively on US dramas going forward."

    So is Sky Atlantic going away and if not what will it show?
