We are going to dissect some of Sky’s best TV, because, you never know, you might be missing out on an absolute gem of a programme that soon becomes your favourite.
Game of Thrones, Sky Atlantic
Where else could we start, but with this absolute TV blockbuster? If you’ve managed to somehow avoid the spoilers splattered all over the internet, then there is still time to start from the beginning.

This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime programme, and if you’re not already on board, then we would seriously recommend joining the emotional roller coaster that is Game of Thrones. Just don’t grow any emotional attachments to any of the characters…
Chernobyl, Sky Atlantic
As you may have guessed, Sky Atlantic is home to some of the best TV programmes. Chernobyl is set to be another added to the growing list. The 5-part mini series begins on the 7th May 2019 and covers a real-life story of a man-made tragedy, and follows the brave people who made huge sacrifices to save Europe from what could have been a monumental disaster.
