SYFY is the long-known home of science fiction TV shows and films. If science fiction is your thing, you'll likely already know about the SYFY channel.
With vintage favourites Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as original series like The Librarians and plenty of genre films, SYFY is packed with amazing fantasy drama and jaw-dropping visions of the future. Both from the past and present.
Up until recently, SYFY UK was easily available on all major pay-TV providers, including Sky, Virgin Media and NOW. However, on 26 July 2022, SYFY was re-branded as Sky Sci-Fi. It still offers the same sci-fi classics that fans know and love, alongside some exciting new shows.
This includes SurrealEstate, a paranormal series featuring Tim Rozon and Sarah Levy (Schitt’s Creek) and the new zombie series Day of the Dead.
Sky Sci-Fi is available on Sky, NOW and Virgin Media.
Sky Sci-Fi's line-up is pretty unique among UK broadcasters, with fantasy and science fiction shows making up the entirety of its programming. Here are just some of the geektastic TV shows fans can expect to watch on Sky Sci-Fi:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Cyanide and Happiness Shorts
Don't Feed The Humans
