Gold - previously styled G.O.L.D. (a backronym for Go On Laugh Daily), UKTV Gold and UK Gold - is a subscription channel that broadcasts repeats of many British comedy favourites.

Established in the early 1990s by the BBC and Thames Television to exhibit their archive highlights, Gold does not have much in the way of original programming but has produced a number of documentaries reflecting on popular series, including Blackadder Exclusive: The Whole Rotten Saga.

Since 2012 the channel has begun developing its own original comedies, including a revival of Yes, Prime Minister and new sitcom You, Me & Them.
