Sky Atlantic

When can customers expect to receive Sky Atlantic ? It has had so many good programmes over the last few years, we are definitely missing out big time. I am seriously thinking of transferring to Sky.

Re: Sky Atlantic

Last I read it's a Sky exclusive still. Sky want to keep it that way so people will choose them over another provider, hence why they put a lot of appealing shows etc in that Sky exclusive channel.

Re: Sky Atlantic

It is still Sky exclusive, & Sky have shown no signs of budging to wholesale providers. BT & TalkTalk have bypassed this to some extent now by signing a seperate deal with HBO, & can show programmes like Game of Thrones without taking the channel, but I cant see the situation with SA changing in the near future.

I didn't know about this, that's interesting and encouraging that other providers are negotiating deals directly with HBO.
