 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 16th April to 3rd May 2019


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 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 a few in the morning, and a few more in the late afternoon and evening too.

For the Easter holidays, we get extra weekday 10:30am singles and 4pm doubles, and a number of additional daytime extras on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

Currently occupying those slots: season 21, followed by 22 & 23, each in two concurrent runs, one primetime and one out-of-primetime. We also get a sprinkling of season 9 in daytime, also repeated at weekends.

And of course, Sky's full run of season 30 continues on Fridays at 8pm: it's "I'm Dancing as Fat as I Can" on the 19th, "The Clown Stays in the Picture" on the 26th, and "101 Mitigations" on the 3rd. Each episode gets an encore the following Sunday, usually at 6:30pm.

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

Latest UK DVDs: The Season 18 DVD set is out now in the UK - woo-hoo! Order it from Amazon here. No word yet on season 19, sadly.

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.

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.
