SKY is excited to welcome brand-new channel JONES! too to its basic tier channel line-up from July 1. JONES! too will showcase even more iconic telly favourites from the 1960s to the 1990s with every weekend offering a marathon of classic content, dedicated to a TV icon or celebrated series.
Rachel Thomson, SKY’s Manager of General Entertainment Channels says the new channel has been the result of overwhelming customer feedback.
“There’s been an enormous amount of positive sentiment around the JONES! brand since the 2013 launch and the channel is consistently amongst SKY’s most watched. Being able to offer an even wider selection of nostalgic and escapist classic content to our customers, on JONES! too, is a no-brainer.”
JONES! too will launch on Saturday 1 July at 10am and will be available to all SKY domestic customers as part of the basic subscription at no extra cost.
