Look out for late-night episodes on Thursdays 17th and 24th and Monday 28th - details below, including the post-watershed-only "What Animated Women Want" and "Whiskey Business", and your only chance to catch any "Treehouse of Horror" episodes on C4 this Halloween.

Nothing currently on 4Seven. 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
 15th October to 1st November 2019


SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30
SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky currently broadcast four episodes on weekdays: at 5pm, then from 6:30pm to 8pm. Weekends are a little less predictable, but we usually get a decent number of episodes - usually between six and eight a day, spread across the afternoon and evening.

Currently occupying those slots: season 21, followed by 10, and then 11. Each airs in two concurrent runs: one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings).

Also in the mix: a number of Treehouse of Horror episodes, for Halloween. There are five on Halloween evening itself, plus more in primetime on Sunday 27th, as well as in late night slots on the 27th, 29th and 30th.

No word yet on a rerun of season 30; I'm keeping an eye out. No preliminary news regarding season 31 yet, either, though it's a little early for that.

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