Once again a pox upon sky!  

Friends, Romans Fl*sters, this very rapid drive post is brought to you courtesy of the flurry of excitement caused by Sky’s Never Miss service showing that Supernatural Season 9 was to be expected on our screens in summer 2014.

After seeing the posts about it, I went on the board myself and yes that’s exactly what it said. So me being me sent them an email which went like this.....

I've just been on Sky never miss, and I've seen Supernatural season 9 is advertised as being screened in the summer. Could you please confirm that you will be screening the show, or is it an error? If it is an error would you please rectify the information, as it will raise many fans hopes they will be able to watch the show. Many thanks.

Once again very sorry for the poor English, but it was almost half twelve last night. But then today I received this…..

Hi,

Thanks for your email regarding Supernatural season 9. I'm sorry to advise you that there are no scheduled plans to show this on the sky platform. Any updates on this can be obtained from our Never Miss when they become available.

Kind Regards

Margaret

Viewer Relations

Now I don’t know if this means someone else has got their hand on our show, and they are going to show it soon. But I feel another email coming on to ask them to take the entry down, as it’s akin to rubbing salt in the bloody wounds.

So folks tell me what do you think about this latest turn of events?

I just posted a similar rant on my page as I phoned Sky Viewer relations and unfortunately it's not being shown on Sky. They just haven't bothered to update their 'Never Miss' website - ironic huh??!! The lady on the phone was very apologetic so I didn't like to rant at her but I will be complaining to Sky (again!) as I think it's outrageous that UK fans won't be able to see the show on TV and the DVD's won't be out until November. I have downloaded to my laptop for the first time this season but it's not the same as watching it on TV.

Unbelievable!!

I was seething gently, it so ruddy annoying but I might respond and ask if any other network has picked it up. Then they wonder why we down load.

Have fucking at it! Gimme the link for emails again, because I'm about to let loose as well. I never for one minute thought that they were actually going to show it but it should NEVER have been on Sky Never Miss! Arsehats!

Well they obviously *have* updated their website! because up until yesterday it said "UK broadcast status unconfirmed" which makes me think maybe they have to say SKY have no plans to show it as it's not Sky who now have the rights - Never Miss includes programmes from all the non-Sky channels too...

(Oh and Never Miss still says "coming summer 2014"...)

I must admit, it's very curious and I've noticed Supernatural has vanished from Living's late night repeats. I wonder if someone has brought all the rights to the show, and they will announce they are showing it. I've got everything crossed that's the case.

Ooh really? Up to season 8 was still on the boxset list, but shows on non-Sky channels are still on there too. Curiouser and curiouser!

It's just beyond weird, but I refuse to give up!
