Homeland Finds New Home on SKY

SKY AGREES CONTENT PACKAGE DEAL WITH FOX
23.12.2013


SKY Television has secured a content package deal with 20th Century Fox Television which will see a range of content screen across the network’s channels, both pay and free-to-air.

SKY’s Director of Programming, Travis Dunbar, says the deal will put an end to Kiwi viewers’ speculation on how they can catch up with their favourite FOX series.

“We are excited to give critically acclaimed series Homeland, The Americans and American Horror Story a home on SoHo, SKY’s premium drama channel. These dramas are made for US pay networks to screen un-cut and uninterrupted and in a prime time slot - making them perfect to include in our SoHo schedule.”

He added: “Our subscribers know that when we commit to a series they can rest assured it is in an environment that is not affected by ratings and therefore is not subject to being moved dependent on performance.”

“We are also mindful that fans have had to wait longer than usual to see the latest episodes of these popular series so we are working hard with FOX to get them on-air as soon as possible. Going forward we will screen them on fast turnaround after their US premiere as we do with the majority of our SoHo series.”

The package deal also includes the breakout new season hit Sleepy Hollow and well-established favourites Bones and Modern Family, all of which will screen free-to-air on Prime.

“We are very excited to include these key shows in Prime’s schedule,” said Head of Prime Karen Bieleski.

“Over the years Kathy Wright and her team have been steadily investing in Prime’s programming slate. It is terrific to bring our viewers these much-loved series which we are confident will find a great free-to-air home with us,” she said.

Schedule information for all titles will be released in due course.
