Re: Sky Atlantic

Hi davsco1973,

It's probably because Sky are asking too much for Sky Atlantic, or they want to keep it for themselves (and NowTV which is Sky) to try and entice customers.

Season 3, episodes 1-8 are available in the Virgin Media store for £17.99 link  Westworld 

Plus you could always get a Now TV stick to watch Sky Atlantic

Re: Sky Atlantic

because sky will not let them. Sky want to keep it as an exclusive for just that reason.

Re: Sky Atlantic

As said... get a NowTV box or stick - mine works fine for Sky Atlantic for the missus and G.O.T. Will need the Sky pass of course.

Re: Sky Atlantic

I've read numerous posts where people cancel the Now TV Entertainment pass and keep getting reduced rates for it indefinitely? Not tried it myself though.

Re: Sky Atlantic

I don't know about indefinitely - sounds unlikely - but there have been deals for limited periods of times such as three months. Now TV is no different to VM in that various deals are available at different times, and I can think of a bunch of VM deals off the top of my head, like free upgrade to V6, free TV, free Xbox One, etc. Another example is my Virgin Mobile SIM-only for a year with 2MB is free for a year.

Re: Sky Atlantic

Sky Atlantic may be the first UK channel to show Westworld, but it's not the only channel.

SyFy UK broadcast Season 1 and Season 2 back-to-back in weekly double-bills in the run up to Season 3 starting on Sky Atlantic.

Sky's parent company is now the same as SyFy UK, in fact I believe they have merged their UK operations into the same building.

It's possible Season 3 may appear there eventually.
