 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings

SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 26
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Currently on Sky1, most weekdays are home to an episode at 5pm and a triple bill from 6:30pm. There's also a 6pm double bill on Saturdays, and Sundays see a triple bill from 5pm.

Sky1's relatively organised scheduling continues, with most seasons playing through in some sort of order. In-order playthroughs of seasons 4, 5, 6, 7, 12 and 25 comprise the majority of the schedule through the coming weeks. Full details below.

New episodes: Currently on hiatus. Sky1 were scheduled to be caught up with date with the US as of the New Year, but they pulled "Blazed and Confused" at the last minute back in December with no explanation, and it remains unscheduled. No word yet on when any other newbies will be broadcast, either.

Note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards, are now simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.

 Additional Notes and Latest UK DVDs
 Updated December 2014

Latest UK DVDs: Season 17 is available now - woo-hoo!.

UK scheduling history: check out my June 2012 piece for Dead Homer Society, "English? Who Needs That?": The Simpsons in the United Kingdom, a 3000-word piece on the show's history, scheduling and ratings over here. (Also check out The Ann Arbor Review of Books, where I'm writing a regular column about British perception of American culture, "Imported Goods".)

Credit where credit's due: Many thanks to David McCormick, creator of this page and original maintainer; Brian Petersen and Adam Wolf, who contributed HTML; and Phinbart, Jared Morris, Robert Burroughs, Matt Johnson, Danny M and Ben Clifford for helping out around these parts - much appreciated! Thanks also to the members of the No Homers Club who regularly contribute to the UK scheduling discussing thread, which is very closely linked with this page (I post as Wezzo there).

Contact: Being completely accurate is great, but unfortunately, sometimes unattainable. Changes can occur that are beyond my control; if you spot any such late amendments, note any errors, or have any suggestions or queries regarding the listings, please contact me - details here, e-mail is your best bet for a speedy answer.

Syndication of listings: If you wish to use these listings on your site (with credit, please!), drop me a line.
