Tiger Woods, Robin Williams & David Attenborough documentaries on the way as Sky launch two brand new channels
The announcement comes just as the broadcaster launches the new Sky Comedy.
McMillions has quickly become one of the most-talked about documentaries of recent years, after the first three episodes were aired at the Sundance Film Festival this week. Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind has already been riding high on fantastic reviews, giving an intimate portrait of one of the best comedians to have ever lived. And obviously we don't need to tell you just how fantastic David Attenborough is...
All of these documentaries and more have been announced as Sky launch two brand new channels, set to arrive very soon on their services, both of which make some very happy news for factual programming.
Sky Documentaries and Sky Nature are set to debut later in Spring 2020, and the announcement was made on the same day that Sky Comedy has been made available to customers.
The channels will be made available for no extra charge to Sky customers through linear and on demand, as well as being made available to Now TV customers via the Entertainment Pass.
As for what you can expect on the channels, Sky have given just a taster of what Sky Documentaries will include:

Zai Bennett, the managing director of content at Sky, had the following to say about the launch of the two new channels:
"Premium documentaries and nature series are increasingly important to our customers, with them wanting to get to the shows they want as quickly as possible. That’s why we’re launching two new content brands, Sky Documentaries and Sky Nature.
"These new channels will offer our customers an unrivalled destination for brand new, world class documentaries and nature programming as well as an extensive on demand library of the world’s best factual programmes."
