 Channel 4 & 4seven: Schedule Status & Listings

SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 8, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, Digiguide

Channel 4 are currently primarily airing season 28 on weekdays at 6pm, and season 8 in weekday morning doubles from 11:05am. Season 3 follows 8 in the latter. From Monday 2nd, there's also a 5:30pm episode, from season 20, and the second episode of the morning double shifts to season 27 on that same date. From Monday 9th, the season 20 episode moves to 6pm, and season 10 occupies the space left by the conclusion of season 28; then, from the 16th, season 20 disappears, and we're left with a season 10 double-bill.

On weekend mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we get season 2, as well as some repeats of the prior week's weekday episodes. Season 26 follows.

There are also a few late-night episodes dotted about the schedules - see details below. And over on 4seven, we get additional late-night repeats on various days of the week - see schedules below for details.

Episodes starting between midnight and 5:30am are listed as part of the previous day's schedule, similar to most print TV guides. 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.

LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

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

Currently airing: season 5, 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 6, and then season 7, occupying those same slots. There's also sometimes season 31 early on weekends.

Season 32 has now concluded, but I'll be sure to note when it next gets a repeat run. Episodes starting between midnight and 5:30am are listed as part of the previous day's schedule, similar to most print TV guides. As ever, note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.
