Sky announces new Crime and Comedy channels

Will launch in October 2019 and February 2020 respectively

Sky has announced plans to launch two new entertainment channel brands, Sky Crime and Sky Comedy.

Both channels will be available to all Sky customers at no extra charge, through linear and on demand, as well as on NOW TV.

Sky Crime will launch in October 2019 as home of US true crime content from Oxygen and HBO, alongside first-run content from Jupiter and Woodcut, including I Love You, Now Die and The Disappearance of Susan Cox Powell.

Sky Comedy will launch in February 2020 as home of scripted US comedy from HBO, NBC and Showtime, including Mrs Fletcher, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

Zai Bennett, Sky content MD, said: “Sky Crime and Sky Comedy are fantastic additions to our entertainment portfolio, providing our customers with two new destinations for their favourite shows.

“Sky Crime, the home of premium true crime, will complement Sky Witness perfectly, while Sky Comedy is an exciting new proposition for Sky customers, offering them a daily dose of the best US comedy which will sit alongside our expanding slate of Sky Original comedy on Sky One.

“By investing in the best of the US as well as doubling our investment in original drama and comedy, we are making Sky an unbeatable destination for the best range of premium TV,” he added.
