Sky Atlantic is a German-language pay-TV station specializing in the broadcasting of HBO productions and therefore has the slogan "The Home of HBO".

History

The pay-TV station started its broadcast in HD on 23 May 2012 at 9 pm and was free of charge for three weeks for all Sky subscribers.[1] For the regular reception, the "Sky Entertainment" package and optionally the HD channels must be subscribed. A SD version was started on December 3, 2013. Since 5 November 2015, a one-hour timeshift of Sky Atlantic is also available in HD.[2]

The best audience, with 0.48 million viewers, scored the channel with the premiere of the seventh season of the series Game of Thrones on 17 July 2017.[3]

The timeshift channel Sky Atlantic+1 was switched off on 11 September 2017. The service was replaced by the timeshift service Sky1+1 on 22 September 2017.[4]
