UK-based Sky Vision has acquired the global rights outside of the U.S. for duelling robot competition series BattleBots.

Sky is going to shop the first 6 x 60-minute season, which ran in the summer of 2015 on ABC, at MIPTV, as well as the second season of 11 episodes, which will be available later this year.
