Syfy is a Dutch-language digital television channel service specializing in science fiction, fantasy, and horror shows and movies. The channel launched in 2007 as a sister channel to the US Sci Fi Channel, with a similar programming line-up. Syfy currently operates as a channel service of Universal Networks International, a division of NBCUniversal.

The channel can be seen on the cable networks of UPC, Ziggo and CAIW in the Netherlands and in Belgium via Belgacom TV and Telenet Digital TV.

Sci-Fi Channel had previously been available in Benelux in the '90s. Failing to attract audiences, the channel withdrew from Benelux and Scandinavia at the end of 1998, focusing on their UK service instead.[1]

An HD-simulcast started through UPC Netherlands on 1 May 2013.[2]
