As Sky One is the 6th channel on UK Television , and sky have there own news channel (as you all know) - I would of thought maybe they would have Sky news bulletins on the Sky One channel. It would certainly make the channel more interesting. Because I don't really watch it - and I would start to if there was more own it - like a news bulletin. And it would help promote sky news or boost the viewers of it.

I know there must be an obvious reason and this question is silly - But i Don't see why they don't have the bulletins ?? Rolling Eyes

Sky 1 is really poor these days. Most of the good stuff appears to been hived off to Sky Atlantic and so it makes for a really mediocre offering. It certainly isn't the '6th channel'.

This. A Guardian podcast (IIRC it was the Guardian) made a point that Sky's main channels - One, Living and Atlantic - are so similar that the hosts couldn't correctly guess which channel certain programmes were on. Since Atlantic is developing its own homegrown stuff as opposed to HBO imports, and Living has "un-feminined" itself to show more drama etc and become more generic, Sky essentially have three of the same channel.

They did hourly daytime Sky News updates in the late 90s, which was achieved by sticking former Thames announcer Martin Weedon somewhere in the newsroom with the backing music from the Sky One idents
