About Sky Witness
Good news for ‘whodunnit’ fans - Sky Witness is jam-packed with hit US courtroom dramas and thrillers.
Formally Sky Living, this incarnation of the channel has done away with reality TV shows like America’s Next Top Model, and, as its name suggests, is exclusively home to suspenseful crime dramas like Criminal Minds and Elementary.
There are three channels available: Sky Witness, Sky Witness +1, and Sky Witness HD.
What can I watch on Sky Witness?
Most of the shows available will come from the US, so, if you’re expecting plenty of Agatha Christie style affairs set in the placid countryside, you’ll likely be disappointed.
Drama includes Criminal Minds, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Madame Secretary, The Good Doctor as well as Instinct, and a brand-new show: The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair.
How do I get Sky Witness?
Most of the UK’s pay TV services have packages that include Sky Witness. Here’s how you get it:
Unsurprisingly, Sky Witness is available with Sky TV - though if you want to see Johnny Lee Miller being all suave and clever in stunning high definition, you’ll need the Sky HD add-on. Everything is available with Sky On Demand as well, and you can watch it anywhere with Sky Go, which is free for all Sky customers.
Virgin Media includes Sky Witness in its Mix TV package, though, again, you’ll have to splash out for the higher-tiered Full House TV for the HD version of the channel.
You’ll find it on Virgin TV Anywhere too, so you can watch it live and on demand from any device if it’s included in your package.
With TalkTalk, you’ll get Sky Witness included as standard if you choose the TV Plus package. If not, you can still get it with the TV Select boost.
Finally, you can get it with Now TV, via a dedicated set top box, streaming stick, or web browser. NOW TV is also available through YouView boxes - which is the only way you can get Sky Witness with a BT TV subscription.
