'Glee' is set to move to Sky.
The first two series of the US musical TV show have been aired on E4 but Sky has now poached the rights to the third season after a fierce battle between the two networks.
Sky have agreed to pay a reported £12 million for the rights, which works out at nearly £500,000 an episode.
While it is not yet known what will happen in the third series of 'Glee' - which stars Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch and Dianna Agron - it was recently revealed Matthew will perform one of his own songs in the season two finale.
The actor - who plays teacher Will Schuester in the musical TV show - is set to sing 'Still Got Tonight', the single from his debut self-titled album, in the New York-themed episode.
The ballad, which was co-written by former 'American Idol' winner Kris Allen, will be played by Matthew alone on an empty theatre stage.
He said: "It was going to be just a big dance piece with me doing this big dance number. But they said, 'We want you to sing it and make it a big moment.' "
