Sky Arts To Air Onion News Network

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.
