It felt like a Sky acquisition waiting to happen, but Broadcast’s Peter White has told Twitter than Channel 4 will be screening Agents of SHIELD in the UK.
Perhaps his story in the morning will tell us how soon after the US transmission Channel 4 will go, or even what day of the week the show will air on.
Also interesting might be any background info on the dealmaking. One might fantasise that a Disney-Fox rivalry played some part in it.
But really, this all boils down to a nice bit of good news: SHIELD have their UK home set up, and it’s Channel 4.
