Re: Sky Comedy

A quick internet search suggests the answer is yes.  It replaces Universal from 27 Jan 2020.

Re: Sky Comedy

Seems a strange change in the choice of Tv shows they both broadcast but in saying that at least it will be one less channel that has NCIS on a never ending loop.

Re: Sky Comedy

It's not that odd as many of the Universal shows are transferring to Sky Witness. There wasn't much point in Sky owning too many similar channels, so rather than having less channels they changed genre.

Re: Sky Comedy

just looked "forward" and Universal 121 & 122 are "Channel No Longer Available" from 6am on Monday 27th so hopefully Sky Comedy will appear on another number somewhere

408 is Sky Cinema Comedy HD, which is a different channel to the new Sky Comedy channel.
