Glee Season 3 to début on Sky in the UK

Following a fierce bidding war, that saw Channel 4 pull out of the negotiations, Sky TV has landed the rights to show the next season of hit Fox series, Glee in the UK.

The US high school based musical drama series has been shown on UK channel E4 since it launched two years ago and consistently has been the channels highest rated programme. However that did not stop Channel 4 for from pulling out of the talks when the price became too high and issuing the following statement, “By not renewing the Glee deal, we are freeing up huge amounts of budget to invest in home-grown programming, British talent and of course continuing to discover and showcase what the US has to offer.” Whilst it is hard to not agree that freeing up your budget is good thing for the channel, losing one of your highest rated programmes doesn’t quite redress the balance.  As for Glee’s new home, Sky, they are thought to have paid £12million for the rights to the series and will no doubt when the dust has settled make sure they get their monies worth.

Are you sad to see Glee go from E4? Do you think £12million was too high a price to pay? Leave your comments below.
