 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 29th August to 19th September 2014


SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Currently on Sky1, most weekdays are home to an episode at 5pm and a triple bill from 6:30pm. Most Saturdays see a few scattered episodes, and there's usually a Sunday evening five-pack (times vary).

Sky1's relatively organised scheduling continues, with most seasons playing through in some sort of order - but things are getting a lot more repetitive, too. Seasons 12, 23 and 24 comprise the majority of the schedule as September beckons, but episodes are often repeating themselves within a week or two (not even within a different 'strand', in some cases).

New episodes: As of August 24th, season 25 has finished its first run. No word on a season 26 premiere date yet, unsurprisingly!

Note that new episodes, and repeats of episodes from mid-season 20 onwards, are now simulcast on Sky 1 HD, in High Definition.

 Additional Notes and Latest UK DVDs
 Updated May 2014

Latest UK DVDs: Season 16 is out now; Frink adorns the front cover this time around. Order it now, and look out for my review of the season on the News page eventually (I promise!). Season 15 is, of course, still available to buy on DVD; my review is now available here.

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, Danny M and Ben Clifford 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.
