Let the Stories Begin

Sky is providing subtitles and audio description on some Sky Atlantic programming. Programmes that currently have subtitles include: 24, Boardwalk Empire, Blue Bloods, and Six Feet Under. Programmes that currently have audio description include Boardwalk Empire, Blue Bloods and Six Feet Under.  We’re providing the service on these shows because we believe that they will have the largest audiences given the promotion we have done, and we wanted to make sure that our deaf or partially deaf and blind or partially sighted customers could enjoy them.

It’s important to note that, given Sky Atlantic is a new channel, we are not obliged to provide access services in the first year that it’s on air. Once the channel has been on air for over a year we will know exactly what level of access services to provide, based on audience levels.
