Sky Movies Comedy has to be one of my favourite movie channels with sky. Unlike sky movies premier it doesn't have a +1 feature which means that you cannot view the same films an hour later if you missed the start.
-----Why would you want it-----
If like me you love to have a laugh, the this is the channel for you. For 24 hours a day there are different types of comedies to suit all tastes and suitable for all ages. There are two different times during the day that each movie will play, this means that if you couldn't manage to watch it at one time of the day and didn't want to record it, or if you don't have sky+, then you can watch it later.
-----How do you receive it-----
This channel is only available the customers that have the movies pack or the full sky world pack.
-----When can you watch-----
Daily 24 hours a day.
Sky Movies Comedy is one of my favourite channels. I love watching funny films, and remember that laughing makes you live longer. At the moment Sky Movies Comedy has a 'Murphy marathon' on from Monday 24th of November, this is a compilation of his best films. I really like Eddie Murphy especially when he was in the nutty professor. So you know what I will be doing for the next few nights then, I bet I will be sore the next day from all that laughing.
SKY MOVIES COMEDY is a movie channel available in the UK on the Sky Digital satellite system.
As many regular readers of my reviews will know, I am mad about movies and watch as many of them as I can. To this end the Sky Movies selection of channels is very useful as they show a wide variety of movies, and show them repeatedly, so if I miss them one time I know that it will come round again soon enough, giving me another chance to see it. SKY MOVIES COMEDY is no different in this respect. It is available as part of the 'Movies Mix' which costs a different amount depending on the package that you are on. Personally I pay £34 for the 'Movies Mix' and the 'Variety Mix'. The 'Variety Mix' alone would cost £16 so in total I pay £18 per month for the privilege of receiving all of the Sky Movies channels.
Movies that are coming up soon on SKY MOVIES COMEDY that I am particularly looking forward to include:
Starring Jack Black as a Mexican wrestler. I saw this movie at the cinema and was mildly amused - hopefully I may take to it more fondly on TV.
I've not seen this film (starring Simon Pegg) although my fiancee thinks that its fantastic. I'll find out for myself soon enough.
A very funny movie starring Matthew Broderick as a high school teacher who comes a cropper when he attempts to curb the ambitions of student Reese Witherspoon. I always enjoy seeing Witherspoon on screen as she is such a good actress.
All in all, SKY MOVIES COMEDY is well worth watching if you like comedy movies.
