Sky, for the first time, is giving everyone a chance to sample entire episodes of Sky shows online for free.
To watch the first episodes from some of Sky’s exclusive shows, viewers can visit a new YouTube channel, Sky First Episodes, which launches on February 1st. Through the channel, viewers can access full episodes of popular Sky shows, including Moone Boy, The Tunnel, Moonfleet and A Young Doctor’s Notebook. More shows will be added regularly over the coming months.
Naomi Gibney, Sky’s Director of Entertainment, Marketing and Digital, adds: “We’re passionate about delivering truly great TV – and the best way of demonstrating this is to give people the opportunity to enjoy the shows for themselves. The combination of Sky First Episodes and a TV campaign featuring entire clips from our biggest and best series means that now everyone has the chance to sample Sky shows.”
