The Orville on Sky?

There's a new sci-fi comedy on Fox on the other side of the pond called The Orville. An hour-long episodes parody of Star Trek and the gengre. Will it be on aired on any Sky channel?

I spotted this show a few months back when I saw the trailer on Youtube and it caught my attention because of the involvement of Seth Macfarlane (Family Guy, etc) and it seemed like something that might be worth catching if it did come to the UK.

 

However, not having read anything to the contrary, this might still be one of the many US shows still to find a home in the UK..... so whether it ends up on a Sky channel or somewhere else, that is probably a deal that is still to be done.

Further to my previous reply from yesterday about your post on The Orville, check the link below from the TV Wise website...... looks like the show will be shown in the UK on Fox.

Hope this helps.

It's the 14th, I've been searching for the Orville, but I can't see it.

 

Will we be able to watch it on now tv?

You will be able to watch it  on NowTV catch up @Anonymous User , but shows can take up to 24 hours to appear on catch up. But to be fair, most stuff will usually appear within a few hours  after linear broadcastSmiley Very Happy

The show is currently being aired now on the Fox live channel.

 

I would suspect that sometime after 10pm onwards tonight the show will be added to the catch up service.

Hi Guys

 

I was watching "The Orville" last night and, even though it's a comedy parody of Star Trek, I was wondering how they managed to avoid being sued by CBS and Paramount?

 

BTW, I did enjoy it and I can imagine that Seth MacFarlane has now got the live vehicle he always wanted to star in.

@Anonymous User Welcome to the forum. Yes that's right, the episodes are on catch-up so they will appear each week after the new episode airs on the Fox channel. Enjoy!
