Jaw-dropping docs and awe-inspiring nature series await… and that’s a fact

By Virgin TV Edit

Ready for top-notch documentaries and glorious, so-good-you-wish-you-could-move-there and/or stroke-that-animal nature series? Customers with the Mix TV pack and above, and Mixit customers who take the Entertainment & Documentaries pick, can now watch Sky Documentaries (CH 278) and Sky Nature (CH 280) at no extra cost! If you’re a Full House customer, you can still watch both channels in high definition (Sky Documentaries HD CH 277, and Sky Nature HD CH 279).


Both channels are fit to bursting with factual programming that will have you regularly raising an eyebrow as one fascinating true story or amazing animal fact blows your mind and makes you go, “Huh… Maureen, did you know wombat poops are cube-shaped?”

The History Of Comedy, which inevitably includes the iconic Robin Williams

From feature-length docs like André The Giant, which examines the life of French professional wrestler and actor André René Roussimoff, or The History Of Comedy, a series that asks what makes American people laugh, Sky Documentaries covers all manner of topics. You can also step inside the minds of the individuals calling the shots behind the camera in The Directors.

The Directors, featuring Spike Lee, Quentin Tarantino and more

Sky Nature features breathtaking nature series that explore the planet’s history and the wider natural world, including SupersensesAnimals Decoded and The Great Elephant Tale, which airs on Sunday 24 January.


So whether it’s gritty documentaries about the Second World War or cute, wide-eyed geckos that get you going, Sky’s duo of factual channels will definitely have you covered!


And that’s not all!
