After reading about how Comedy Central is messing around with Futurama on TV in the US I'd like to point out some things about Sky's coverage of Futurama on their channels.

Here's a list as to what I've seen:

1) Shown regularly on more than one channel (Sky One, Two and Three).
2) Only one ad break per episode.
3) As far as I can tell NONE of the episodes has been sped up or edited.
4) Has been shown in production order NOT in Fox broadcast order.
5) Is available free again on Freeview  (currently being shown on Sky Three again on Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm).

This is from someone who isn't a fan of Sky in the slightest (I don't even have satelite but do have Freeview), however the fact that Futurama has been treated so well by the company means I actually hope they get the UK rights to the new season (i.e. the movies chopped up into episodes).

sped up?

Apparently the Comedy Central "version" of the episodes runs slightly faster than normal.
