2014 will be the "biggest and best ever year" for entertainment on Sky TV, the satellite broadcaster has claimed.

Stuart Murphy, Sky’s Director of Entertainment Channels, said customers will be able to enjoy "an outstanding breadth and quality of TV" across Sky’s four main entertainment channels: Sky 1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts and Sky Living.

"From brand new home-grown comedy and drama to the biggest series from the US, this year Sky customers can look forward to enjoying some of the very best shows on British TV," he said.

During 2014, Sky viewers can look forward to new home-grown drama including 'Fleming' starring Dominic Cooper on Sky Atlantic, and 'The Smoke' featuring Jodie Whittaker and Jamie Bamber on Sky 1.

Comedy fans will be able to enjoy Nick Frost and Olivia Colman in 'Mr Sloane' (Sky Atlantic).

In total, Sky is to invest £600 million in British content across its channels in 2014, including a number of original commissions.


To watch the first episodes from some of Sky’s biggest home-made shows, viewers will be able to visit a brand new YouTube channel - Sky First Episodes - from Saturday 1st February.

Viewers can enjoy full episodes of popular British programmes, including 'Moone Boy' (Sky 1), 'The Tunnel' (Sky Atlantic), 'Moonfleet' (Sky 1) and 'A Young Doctor’s Notebook' (Sky Arts).

Naomi Gibney, Sky’s Director of Entertainment, Marketing and Digital, commented that Sky is "passionate about delivering truly great TV".

"The best way of demonstrating this is to give people the opportunity to enjoy the shows for themselves," she stated.

Sky First Episodes will give everyone the chance to sample Sky shows, whether or not they are a subscriber, Ms Gibney explained.
