Three new channels for Now TV

Now TV, the skinny OTT offering of Sky, has announced the launch of three new channels as a part of its Entertainment pass.

The channels, Sky Documentaries, Sky Nature and Sky History all offer a range of exclusive factual shows with “never before seen footage.”

The release of the channels on Now TV follows their initial launch on Sky earlier in May.

ky Documentaries will host content including HBO, Showtime and Hulu exclusives and new Sky original documentaries. According to Sky, the line-up will include a mix of feature length documentaries and series along with 100 on-demand titles.

Forthcoming shows include Hilary, McMillions, Ali Vs Cavett, Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men and The Plastic Nile.

Sky Nature will focus on natural history programming, including Sky original series Wild Animal Babies and Sky’s existing David Attenborough collection and will be the home of Love Nature 4K’s programming in the UK, with shows including Gangs of Lemur Island, Africa’s Underwater Wonders and Mysteries of the Mekong.

The channel has also announced a made-at-home video series with radio DJ and comedian Niall Gray to create a tongue-in-cheek look at his house through the lens of a documentarian.

A+E Networks and Sky announced the plans to make History a joint venture under the Sky History brand in February, intended to complement the launch of Sky’s new wholly-owned factual channels.

Sky History will feature shows including the William Shatner-hosted The UnXplained, Ancient Superstructures, Secret Wars Uncovered and Washington.
