      Sky's Easter Present for Virgin switchers!

      Sky has announced details of a dedicated 'catch-up weekend' this Easter, with some of Sky One’s biggest shows being replayed back-to-back.

      The move is to engage new customers, particularly those who have switched to Sky from Virgin Media after Virgin lost Sky's basic channels from the cable platform, and give them the opportunity to catch-up with Lost, 24, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis.

      Brian Sullivan, Sky’s managing director, customer group, said: "We’re as disappointed as Virgin Media’s customers that the channels they enjoy are no longer available to them. We’re open to further talks with Virgin Media and our last offer remains on the table."

      "We don’t want anyone to miss out on the TV they love. With many Virgin Media customers switching to Sky and others expected to follow, we’re making it as simple as possible to stay right up to date. What’s more, if better TV wasn’t incentive enough, many Virgin Media customers can save hundreds of pounds a year with our fast broadband and great-value phone packages," he added.

      Shows airing on the Sky One catch-up weekend this Easter are:
      Saturday April 7 - Battlestar Galactica 12:00-17:00, episodes 10-14 inclusive.
      Saturday April 7 - 24, 21:00-02:00, episodes 10-14 inclusive.
      Sunday April 8 - Lost, 12:00-17:00, episodes 10-14 inclusive.
      Monday April 9 - Stargate SG1, 13:00 – 15:00, episodes 19 and 20, which are the final two episodes of the series.
      Monday April 9 - Stargate Atlantis, 15:00-17:00, episodes 19 and 20, also the final two episodes of the series.

      Sky One will broadcast new episodes of 24 and Lost in their usual slots on Sunday April 8.
