I seem to remember reading they were going to make it into a HBO-style premium channel with a mix of movies and original shows. Then for whatever reason changed their minds late on. Maybe they decided it wouldn't really work over here. I certainly can't see Harry Enfield and Al Murray making people rush to subscribe, it's not exactly The Sopranos or Sex And The City, is it?
David Baddiel had an awful sitcom on Sky One around the same time too, I wonder if that was intended from Premiere too? No wonder they gave up on the idea if a substandard Harry Enfield sketch show and a dire David Baddiel sitcom is the best they could come up with.
