On Saturday and Sunday mornings on C4, we get seasons 4 and 6, at variable times.

There's outings for The Simpsons Movie on Film4 on the afternoons of Wednesday 21st and Sunday 25th.

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
 20th August to 6th September 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 22, followed by 23, then 28. Each airs in two concurrent runs: one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings). There's also some extra season 27 slots in there too, including some Sunday mornings, and the daytime of Bank Holiday Monday, August 26th.

No word yet on a rerun of season 30; I'm keeping an eye out. Nothing special lined up for the summer holidays, either.

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