 Channel 4 & 4Seven: Schedule Status & Listings
 21st August to 7th September 2018

SEASON RIGHTS: 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, UK TV Guide

Below, you will find both Channel 4 and 4Seven listings in one compact list. The channel is indicated before the time of broadcast - C4 or 47.

Channel 4 have expanded their Simpsons scheduling for the summer holidays. They are currently airing selections from seasons 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 17 and 18 on weekdays from 11am to noon, and 5:30pm to 6:30pm. That's four a day, up from the usual one a day. These episodes sometimes repeat across multiple days and timeslots.

Weekend matinee doubles also continue, with episodes from the aforementioned selection of seasons. There are no episodes on C4 on the 25th and 26th due to sport coverage.

From Monday, September 3rd, as the summer holidays conclude, weekdays go back to just one episode a day, at 6pm, from season 12.

Over on 4seven, they're repeating a selection of the previous week's Channel 4 episodes on Saturday afternoons.

Note that all episodes that air on Channel 4 are simulcast on Channel 4 HD and can be viewed one hour later on their timeshift service, Channel 4 +1. All episodes that air on 4Seven are simulcast on 4Seven HD.

Currently occupying those slots: seasons 8, 20, 21 and 22, primarily, in roughly that order. Each season is showing in two concurrent runs: some are broadcast on Sunday afternoons and in the weekday 4pm doubles; some air on weekend mornings and on weekdays at 5pm and 6:30pm; and some air on weekend evenings and weekdays at 7pm and 7:30pm. Whew! There is also a run of season 27 on Mondays from 8pm to 9pm.

There are also some late-night bonuses on the nights of the 30th and 31st, from midnight to 1am and 11pm to 2am respectively. These are mostly comprised of episodes Sky don't show before the watershed.
