Rewind TV Launches on Sky TV

Today, the 23rd of May 2024, a new archive-themed channel has launched on free to air Sky satellite television. The launch had been previously announced, and has been running test broadcasts. The TV channel, Rewind TV (No connection to a US channel of the same name) began officially at 10 am this morning.

The channel promises to offer a selection of classic TV from around the world, much of it unseen on broadcast television for decades. The schedule includes ITV and ITC classics including Return of the Saint, Department S, The Prisoner, Space 1999 and Sapphire and Steel. Other content includes comedy such as Watching, Cuckoo Waltz, A Fine Romance and Whose Line is it Anyway. Worzel Gummidge Down Under, Dick Turpin (Richard O’Sullivan), Roobarb Monkey, Huckleberry Finn and his Friends and the rarely seen ATV series of Hancock are just some of the other pieces of history making an appearance.

Following the channel’s launch on Sky, a further launch on Freeview is expected in the next few months. This will further open up their availability and put them next to other archive television themed channels, including Talking Pictures TV and That’s TV.

Jamie’s Reaction: It is great to see a new archive channel launch to rival the likes of Talking Pictures, That’s TV, UK Gold and Drama. Further still, I have to applaud the scheduling. It’s a whole range of programming that hasn’t been seen for years, alongside tried and tested favourites that have appeared on other channels recently. I look forward to seeing how this develops, especially once it launches on other platforms.

Rewind TV is available to watch on Sky channel 190. We will endeavour to update you when further news on the channel becomes available.
