New Sky factual channels launched

On 27th May, Sky began a new push into factual programming with the launch of two new channels: Sky Nature and Sky Documentaries. Also on that date, the History channel was rebranded Sky History, as part of a strengthening of the partnership between A+E Networks UK and Sky.
