Sky Atlantic does exactly what it says on the tin. It's the channel you need for access to some of the finest content from across the Atlantic. HBO is the main contributor, with around half of all the programming being from that network. It's a great channel to keep up to date with the shows that the world's talking about, and thankfully it's ridiculously easy to get hold of on a wide range of devices and TV deals. Read on to find out what Sky Atlantic has to offer, and how to get involved.
Sky Atlantic is available to all Sky subscribers, and you can also access it through Now TV, which in turn can be accessed in app form on all sorts of devices! So there really is a whole host of ways to get your fix of American shows.
Sky Atlantic HD is available in the Sky HD bundle as standard too, so if you've got a flash new TV you'll be able to dig into some of the finest cinematography the US has to offer.
But what are the shows you can't miss?
Sky Atlantic is the home of some incredible drama, here's our top picks from across the pond:
It's important to remember there's no alternative to Sky Atlantic for the latest seasons of most HBO dramas, so bear this in mind when you compare TV deals, particularly if you're a big fan of those shows.
Sky Atlantic is available through a Now TV entertainment pass, which is music to the ears of American drama fans, because it means you can access the channel on all sorts of devices which support the Now TV app.
This includes a whole range of smart TVs, Android devices, Iphones and Ipads with software more recent than iOS 8, most games consoles and, crucially, YouView+ boxes. This means you can access Now TV through the app if you're a BT TV or Talk Talk TV user!
Unfortunately, Virgin Media is one of the only TV deals you won't be able to access Sky Atlantic through. Virgin haven't been able to come to a deal with Sky regarding the channel, and their boxes don't support the Now TV app. This means that you won't be able to access the channel on your TV.
However, there's nothing stopping you using the Now TV app on another device, like a laptop or tablet, to get hold of all that juicy American content.
Sky Atlantic can be found on Channel 108 in the Sky TV guide, with Sky Atlantic+1 found on channel 208.
If you're on BT TV Sky Atlantic is available via Now TV on channel 342 in standard definition and channel 357 in HD.
