UK viewers: Why doesn't Sky show DS9?

For a while both Sky and Virgin were showing it. What happened? Are they waiting for a HD version, as Enterprise seems to be the most often broadcast series in the UK.

It all depends on who has the UK rights for it, if anybody at this time.

I see Voyager pop up every so often, but it might just be because it's a harder show to broadcast due to many of the arced elements.

There was a channel showing it on freeview a couple of years ago but they either went off the air or became a different channel entirely.

Re: UK viewers: Why doesn't Sky show DS9?

Sky Atlantic tends to go through two Star Treks at a time, at the moment they're up to late season 6 of Voyager (which I'm recording/watching) and early Enterprise. They also recently finished TNG so DS9 could be next up when Voyager's done.

Doesn't CBS Action have DS9?
