If you're currently halfway through Downton Abbey or Modern Family on Sky On Demand you may want to squeeze in a weekend viewing binge, with the news that both shows are set to be taken off the service by the end of the month.

Critically-acclaimed drama Downtown Abbey is set in a fictional Yorkshire country estate and follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in the post-Edwardian era.

It has received a number of awards, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie. But gongs or no gongs, it'll be removed from the On Demand service from June 25th.

Vera and Whitechapel will expire on the same day, while hit US sitcom Modern Family will remain available until June 30th.

The end of the month will also see Sky call time on the availability of Scandal, Revenge, The Tudors and Kavanagh QC on the On Demand service.

All of Sky's outgoing shows will be replaced with some new arrivals, with Broadchurch and The Wire among the highlights.
