News: Sky teases possible Mad Men simulcast with US air dates

The last season of Mad Men on Sky may be given a simultaneous broadcast in the UK and US in the same way that Game of Thrones will be simulcast when its fourth season begins on 6 April

Sky's director of entertainment channels, Stuart Murphy, said to The Guardian that he wanted to do something special to launch the final run of Mad Men, which returns to Sky Atlantic on 16 April. The show's seventh series will be split into two, and the second part will air next year.

Game of Thrones will air its next season at exactly the same time as it is shown on HBO in the US, 9pm eastern time. It will then be shown again in the UK in its usual 9pm slot.

Sky has previously simulcast episodes of 24 with the US, as well as Lost.
