What's on Sky 1?

What shows can I watch on Sky 1?

Although Sky Atlantic is Sky's flagship channel, Sky 1 was Sky’s first-ever channel and airs a mix of original content and shows from the U.S.

Launched in 1982, Sky 1 was Europe’s first ever satellite and cable channel. The success of this single channel led to the creation of the Sky Television network in 1988, thus giving birth to Sky as we know it today.

From the outset, the channel aired a lot of popular programming imported from the U.S., a trend it still continues today. Since the channel has grown in popularity, more and more original, home-grown programming has been commissioned as well.
