Comedy Central Extra is a television channel shown in United Kingdom and on some digital/cable services in the Republic of Ireland. The channel was previously a so-called 'timeshuffle' service, offering programmes from Paramount Comedy at different times. It has since started broadcasting some different programming from Paramount, often British. It launched on 1 September 2003 on Sky, and followed soon after on 22 September 2003 on Telewest and 15 October 2003 on NTL.
The channel was rebranded from Paramount Comedy 2, to Comedy Central Extra on 6 April 2009.
A timeshift service called Comedy Central Extra +1 (formerly Paramount Comedy 2 +1 from 2007 to 2009) was launched on Sky on 5 November 2007. The channel reduced its hours to 7pm - 6am on 4 August 2008, as Nicktoonsters launched on 18 August 2008.
In January 2007, the channel switched from mainly American programmes to classic British programming with shows such as Seinfeld, Cheers and Roseanne being replaced by Bless This House, George & Mildred and The Upper Hand.
On 17 February 2009, it was announced that both Paramount Comedy 1 and Paramount Comedy 2 would be re-branded as Comedy Central and Comedy Central Extra on 6 April 2009 at 9pm. The name change coincided with the launch of a new programming lineup which included new episodes of Two and a Half Men, The Office and South Park.
