Is Barry still on?

I'm confused - Barry seems to have disapeared from the available shows, but it's still included in the 'what to watch' emails Sky send me. What gives?

The last episode aired on sky comedy on 29th May and would have left catch up a month later due to the 30 day catch up period unfortunately.

I'm afraid you might need to tell us what show.

Would it still be on box sets?

Unfortunately it has not yet been added to box sets after it expired from catch up

You can buy all 4 seasons of Barry on Prime Video or iTunes for about £15 each. Annoyingly they're only in HD (like they were on Sky), whereas the HBO Max streaming service in the USA where they originate from (now just called Max) has them in 4K with Dolby Vision.

It's likely the Sky marketing team just haven't removed the old image from their emails.

 

its really stupid and you would think a marketing team would be able to sync with the relevant programming team to figure out which shows are coming this month and which they even have available on-demand. Unfortunately out of loop marketing teams is very very common

Re: Is Barry still on?

It's a shame as Barry was one of the best shows of recent years IMHO. Superbly written, brilliantly acted and unlike anything else on TV. 

I actually watched the final season whilst I was working in the USA earlier this year. They streamed it (and all the previous seasons) in 4K with Dolby Vision via the Max app which now shows all HBO programmes. Shame Sky never got the 4K versions - it was always just HD. I don't think you can buy the 4K versions at all, even on UHD BluRay - you can only stream them on Max.

Re: Is Barry still on?

If that's the case it's incredible given it's been 6 months since they took it down. These emails go out to millions and it's false advertising. Shame we can't actually complain about it.

 

I think it was only around 2 months after season 4 went up they took the whole lot down.

You could always report to OFCOM if you believe it's false advertising as they are advertising a show that isn't available.
