Do Sky lose the rights to the series that C4 are airing at any time. C4 tend to have rights to five classic series plus one newer (but still a few years old) at any time.


Pretty sure they have overlapped on a few occasions, but Sky have different seasons of the show at different points in the schedule, as do Channel 4. It's no different really to the occasions when the same episode of Family Guy was on Fox at the same time or day as its then BBC Three airing, or even when Scrubs was being aired by half a dozen different networks.

It is - but I don't see the issue.

Your signature has a bit of sense though - but Sky2 will continue to exist with the fact that it squeezes the last bit of revenue from their archive.



I only pointed that out because Sky normally updates their logos within weeks/months of them changing. But then again, Sky are doing this elsewhere on their sites and also in the past on various channels.

As for my signature, I'm very aware that they will keep Sky 2 on air for quite a while as an archive channel (Mainly former/current Sky 1 shows). My only complaint really is that Sky 2 rebrands with new idents and breakbumpers as it has not had a major refresh since 2011. Seeing it is an archive channel, however, I doubt Sky will

It's had a new break bumper with the new logo - but the idents are unchanged mainly, with just a new logo. I doubt that Sky will bother to change it seeing the diminished state it is in.


Yeah, a Sky 2 change is very unlikely now
Seriously, just do us all a favour and close Sky Two..

An interesting video I came across on vimeo, showcasing the work completed by SouthernGFX for Sky. It seems Sky creative create the flat 2d logos in-house and outsource the creation of the 3D logos to SouthernGFX. At one point in the video a 3D logo can be seen being created using the flat logo as a guide. Probably the best thing that has happended to Sky's presentation since the demise of its branding in 2011. Sky Sports was the first channel to use the new logos in its presentation and since then it has been expanded to other channels as part of the rebrand of Sky1, Sky Living, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts and Sky Cinema. I never liked the use of the 2d logos from the 2011 rebrand. When using a 3D logo the logo can be really integrated into the idents (Sky Atlantic, Sky Cinema) rather than being just being slapped on top of footage.

Sky's done wonders with their new pres - Sky1, Atlantic, Arts and Cinema especially are just great with good use of CGI.
