Syfy To Rebrand









Syfy, will be re-branding to Sky Sci-Fi from Tuesday 26 July. The channel has been revamped and will offer new shows while still being home to a host of sci-fi classics.

For the very first time on launch week is the release of SurrealEstate, a paranormal series, featuring cast members Tim Rozon and Sarah Levy (Schitt’s Creek). Also announced as brand new to the channel and airing in launch month, is the zombie series Day of The Dead, inspired by George. A Romero’s horror movie, starring Keenan Tracey and Natalie Malaika. 

Fiction fans will still be able to find their favourite shows on the channel, with Star Trek, Stargate and Quantum Leap named as just a few of the many titles available for avid sci-fi watchers. 

Zai Bennett, Managing Director, Content Sky UK and Ireland, said: “From space adventures to futuristic fantasy, Sky Sci-Fi will be joining the host of genre-led brands launched in the past year and will offer a new universe for viewers to explore. The re-brand will make it easier for people to find exactly what they want, with fan favourites, a multitude of on demand content, as well as a burst of exciting new shows for sci-fi fanatics”. 

At launch, Sky Sci-Fi will offer a selection of Premiere TV movie titles such as Bullet Train Down, Thor: God of Thunder and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The channel has also acquired Stephen King’s sought-after mini-series: IT and Salem’s Lot. 

The re-brand follows previous successful Sky TV portfolio changes including the unveiling of Sky Showcase and Sky Max last year and the launch of genre-based channels including Sky Comedy, Sky Crime and Sky Documentaries. 

The channel will be linear (152) and on demand. 

The change will come into effect from 1100am on Tuesday 26 July.
