Sony Channel brings the television premiere of Orange Is The New Black to the UK tonight
For the first time ever, viewers can watch Orange Is The New Black on television as Sony Channel premieres the show tonight at 9pm.
For those of you who do not have access to a Netflix account, you can now rejoice! You no longer need a subscription to the streaming service to watch the multi-award winning comedy series Orange Is The New Black. The widely-loved show will now be airing every Wednesday at 9pm on Sony Channel, as of tonight (April 19).
Sony Channel is available on Sky channel 157, Virgin Media channel 193 and TalkTalk channel 331 and will broadcast OITNB from the very beginning of season one. In tonight’s episode, we see the straight-cut, middle-class Piper Chapman enter into Litchfield woman’s prison for the first time, and let’s just say she doesn’t receive the warmest welcome from her fellow inmates.
As each episode focuses in on a different character’s backstory, the show takes on a number of difficult subjects including gender, sexuality, race and the criminal justice system in a way that manages to be thought-provoking, hilariously funny and heart-warming all at once.
Sony Pictures Television’s executive VP, Kate Marsh said: “We recognize the demand for premium content that appeals to a broad audience, which is exactly what Orange Is the New Black offers.
“It is widely recognized as a must-see series that we’re pleased to make part of our offering on Sony Channel.”
Lionsgate President of International Television & Digital Distribution, Peter Iacono also added: “Orange is a global phenomenon with ever-growing appeal, and we expect it to be a great addition to Sony’s lineup of must-see premium programming that will resonate with their audience for years to come.”
Make sure to tune in this evening to get yourself up to date before the new season lands on Netflix in June!
Orange Is The New Black premieres on television tonight (Wednesday, April 19) on Sony Channel at 9pm.
