Welcome to the 30th June 2020 update. Streaming service Disney+ has launched in the UK, carrying the first 30 seasons of The Simpsons.

 Channel 4 : Schedule Status & Listings
 30th June to 17th July 2020

SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, UK TV Guide

Channel 4 are currently airing a mixture of seasons 19 and 25 in the weekday 6pm slot, alternating erratically. These are followed by an in-progress season 13. As there is a limited supply of upcoming Hollyoaks episodes due to coronavirus, the 6pm slot is now temporarily a double-bill on some weekdays.

Over Saturday mornings and Sunday lunchtimes on C4, we get scattered episodes from season 6 and 15, in addition to repeats of the prior week's episodes. Times and specifics vary from week to week; see details below. There are also occasional late night episodes; again, see below.

Note that all episodes that air on Channel 4 are simulcast on Channel 4 HD and can be viewed one hour later on their timeshift service, Channel 4 +1. All episodes that air on 4Seven are simulcast on 4Seven HD.

 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 30th June to 17th July 2020


SSN. RIGHTS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30, 31
SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky currently broadcast six episodes on weekdays: usually a double from 10am to 11am, one episode at 5pm, then three more from 6:30pm to 8pm, though this can currently vary due to football coverage (see below). Weekends are a little less predictable, but we usually get a decent number of episodes - usually between five and nine a day, spread across the afternoon and evening.

Currently occupying those slots: Afternoons and evenings are dominated by season 12, in two concurrent runs: one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings). That's followed by season 5, then 17, occupying those same slots. The 10am weekday doubles feature season 3, then 10, and these are partially repeated on Sunday mornings.

Days with reduced/adjusted evening episodes include Tuesday 30th, Wednesday 1st, Tuesday 7th and Monday 13th. Sometimes there are episodes in the 8pm hour to partially make up the difference.

No word yet on a full repeat run of season 31, but I'll let you know as soon as I hear anything.

As ever, note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.
