Hello People,
I too have been searching for Pick TV online or catch up, I do this periodically as I am a fan of Monkey Life and I have to tell you that at present there is none. If I am incorrect in this assertion I would be delighted to be proven wrong. Pick is a wierd kind of dump channel run by Sky with virtually no support and it is very frustrating if, like me, you follow a series they are showing, as they appear to start and stop series with no care for continuity. The only.upside is that they do repeat shows shamelessly so my best advice is be patient, if you've missed it then it will undoubtedly return at some point, in no particular order. But in the meantime this is not the forum to expect official advice of any kind and I salute the Mods for repeating this information with such courtesy. Come on people, read a couple of pages of the thread before posting, y'all are making Pick viewers look like a bunch of numpties. Complain to Sky, if enough of us do maybe they will decide to provide the service and back up we deserve.
