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

SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28
SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky1 are currently generally airing three episodes daily from 6:30pm to 8pm, except Saturdays. Mondays usually have an extra double-bill in the 8pm hour.

Sky are currently broadcasting season 27 in the nightly triple-bills - and that's immediately followed by season 28 from Thursday 21st. The perfect opportunity to catch up on the latest seasons in full (well, except for those episodes that Sky are only willing to air post-watershed - though "Treehouse of Horror XXVII" does get an outing on Thursday 28th at 11pm, alongside another showing of S19's "Love Springfieldian Style" at 11:30). Meanwhile, the Monday 8pm double-bills are showing selections from season 25.

Additionally, if you have the Sky Movies channels, look out for The Simpsons Movie, broadcast at multiple dates and times in the coming weeks on Sky Cinema Family (6th October at 07:35 and 22:15; 12th October at 10:05 and 16:30; 24th October at 12:25 and 18:25) and Sky Cinema Greats (30th September at 10:45 and 18:15).

No word yet on season 29, which starts in the US on October 1 - we'll probably see it hit UK shores in the months following. 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 July 2017

Latest UK DVDs: I feared I'd never be updating this section again, but the Gods have smiled down upon us: three years after season 17, season 18 is a "go!" on disc! Woo-hoo! So far, official word is only out for the US - but I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that it hits UK shelves too.

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, Ben Clifford and Grace 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.
