Hi,

 

Has anybody heard anything about the expanse season 3 returning to sky?  Obviously it used to be on the Zone, which is no more.

 

Has started on US tv start of April.

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

Divxmaster

Last year I think Screenscribe mentioned it was due in 2018.  It appears on https://www.skyadvertising.tv/coming-up as coming to Sky Box Sets. 

 

If thats the case then the show will need to finish in the US so Sky can put all the episodes together as a box set.  S3 is slated to finish in the US at the end of July so it wont be on Sky til after then.  How much after?  Who knows??!

I see the box sets doesnt show the season, so maybe its only s1-s2.

 

I checked prime video, they have it, but not sure if it would be available on a trial.

 

Am due to sign up to a trial soon, so will do so after all the S3 eps are on prime video.

 

 

 

Cheers,

Nope, Sky has already shown S1-2 and wouldnt promote it in the "coming soon" lineup unless it was new content.  As such I'd expect to see S3 later this year on Box Sets.

Looks like they’re using that one to try and force uptake of entertainment package.
$25 for one program, unless there’s other stuff of interest there.

I’ll wait it out for the more value services. (1 year I guess)

Edit: And Box Sets is the only HD channel in package.
