Sky TV axes Sky One after 39 years however provides two new channels to stay up for
Meanwhile, the shows, which aired exclusively on Sky One, are now being broken down into the rest of the satellite company’s programming, including Sky Witness, Sky Comedy, Sky Documentaries, Sky Crime, Sky History, Sky Nature, Sky Arts and Sky Kids. The broadcaster hopes this approach to genre makes it easier for its channels to find a show in the TV guide – if you’re looking for a new David Attenborough, you know Sky Nature is your best bet, while Sky Crime is about the latest gruesome documentaries true crimes.
For those familiar with Sky Sports, Showcase works similarly to Sky Main Event. The latter is a linear channel that showcases some of the most anticipated and discussed games from the rest of the Sky Sports portfolio. Sky Main Event doesn’t have its own exclusive shows, which it will have in common with Sky Showcase.
There is one exception, of course.
