    I am :mad: :mad: :mad: with what Sky One has done with Alias. Up until two weeks ago they have been showing Alias on Sky One on Monday Evening 9pm. Now they are showing it on Sky One Mix, which I can't get as an NTL viewer.

    Only good thing is it is repeated on Sky One on a Saturday Night 11pm and later, but it seems to get moved around. Last night NTL guide showed it as 11pm start. I'd set it to record and was planning to go to bed early. I fortunately saw that they had put a stupid Beckham documentary on at that time. I had to wait until 1130pm to see and advert that said Alias is on at 11.50pm. It's a good thing I checked otherwise would have missed it completely.

    I've heard channel 5 have picked it up. I hope so as they seem to be doing ok with Angel so far [better than C4]. Worst thing is they didn't even wait until the present series was finished.

    Bloody hell- missed yet another episode of this wonderfull series. I might forget about watching it on sky and catch up when it's on C5. C4 seem to be messing around with their schedules as well. I missed the last couple of episodes of the Sopranos- most upsetting.

    Hi,

    Indeed Five have decided to buy the Uk terrestrial rights to "Alias" (Season 2 onwards), afte Channel Four decided "it didn't get enough viewers"! I wonder why?! :mad:

    I know what you mean about Sky!

    I was quite happily watching it on Sky One Mix on a Tuesday because the Sky One showing clashed with Smallville on Monday.

    Until about a few weeks ago when the Tuesday Sky One Mix showing disappeared. So consequently I have stopped watching it until I can catch up with the episodes I missed.

    Its great that Channel 5 are picking up these excellent shows and preventing the muppets at Channel 4 showing them at 6.00pm!!

    That's good, but I bet this will result in me having to pay more than the base pack i'm on to get this extra channel.
