FX has confirmed that it still owns the UK rights to True Blood.

Earlier, it emerged that Sky has signed a deal to buy all of American cable channel HBO's new programming.

Sky also secured the rights to a number of HBO's archived shows.

However, FX has now announced that it still owns the exclusive pay TV and first-run rights for the life of series of True Blood. The news means that the show cannot be aired on other pay TV channels until FX's licence expires.

FX also revealed that it still holds the life of series and first-run rights to Eastbound And Down and all of the HBO programmes it currently has in licence, including The Wire.
