Sky Arts is to air The Onion’s satirical TV show after striking an exclusive deal with an international distributor.

The Onion News Network is parody of 24-hour networks such as Fox News, and is spin-off from The Onion satirical magazine and website. It began as a series of online clips but was made into a programme for the IFC network in the States this year.
