Sonic Boom’s UK run will only be 14 episodes & won’t be in HD

boomuk1

Sonic Boom is finally coming to the UK on Monday, however some details are now emerging which some may find extremely disappointing.

The first piece of news is that Boomerang UK is not a HD channel, nor does Boomerang have a HD channel. Meaning every episode of Sonic Boom in the UK will not be shown in HD, no 720p or 1080p for us, we have to make do with 4:3.

The second bit of news comes from the Sky+ app, Sonic Boom is now appearing on the TV listings when searched, each episode is listed along with a brief plot and episode number. It’s the episode number which is now drawing some concern. Based on the information from the Sky+ app, there are only 14 episodes in the UK’s Sonic Boom run.

If this information is correct, given how Sonic Boom is being shown from Monday to Friday in the UK, Boom’s entire UK run will be over in 3 weeks. Whilst it’s possible that this might be an error, looking at a number of other shows on the app, their listings appear to be correct. Another possibility is that this is a series break, but after only 3 weeks this would be a strange move.

We’ll keep you up to date if this information changes.

Thanks to everyone on our forums who pieced this together.
