Glee fans take note - the hit US show is on the move to Sky.
Calling all Gleeks! If you don’t want to miss out on all new episodes of the third series of the hit American show, grab a pen or pencil and take note – Glee is on the move from Channel 4 to Sky.
The change comes as Sky have won a bidding war against previous owners Channel 4, who have been screening the comedy-drama series since its first season. It’s rumoured that the digital giants were willing to pay American distributor Fox almost double what Channel 4 paid – estimated at a whopping £500,000 per episode.
Despite pulling in the highest ratings for the channel, attracting 2.5 million per episode, it turns out bosses at Channel 4 were more keen to invest in new British shows, as well as hotly anticipated US series The Killing.
A Channel 4 spokesman said: ‘By not renewing the Glee deal, we are freeing up huge amounts of budget to invest in home grown programming, British talent and of course continuing to discover and showcase what the US has to offer. We are particularly thrilled to have recently acquired The Killing.’
So make sure you tune in to Sky for all the latest Matthew Morrison antics when the new series airs later this year…
