As the name suggests, SyFy is the home of all things Sci-fi, including Killjoys, Krypton, Battlestar Galactica, Futurama, and The Twilight Zone. With plenty of its own original content, there will always be a new weird and wonderful show for you to geek out over.


Fox is one of the biggest networks in the US, producing lots of high-quality shows. There’s an eclectic mix of action, comedy and drama from the likes of Family Guy and American Dad, War of the Worlds, The Walking Dead, The Mentalist and The Fix.

Sky has been the Disney destination for UK audiences for years, and the launch of Disney Plus threatened to change that. However, Sky customers can now stream the wonderful world of Disney through their Sky Q boxes, while Sky Cinema Disney remains the first place to see Disney movies after they’ve appeared in cinemas.

Freeview channels on Sky TV

You can access all of the 250 Freeview channels directly through your Sky TV set-top box, including BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, and Channel 4 (including HD) as well as Dave, Yesterday and Challenge and movie channels like Film4 and TCM.
