BBC Knowledge and BBC HD deal leads expansion in Turkey
BBC Worldwide has announced that the BBC Knowledge and BBC HD channels will be made available for the first time on satellite platform Digiturk from August 13, 2013. The rapidly-expanding channels will join renewed carriage contracts of existing BBC Entertainment and BBC World News, effectively doubling BBC presence available on the provider.
The launch of BBC Knowledge continues the channel’s swift expansion throughout Europe with launches this year in Cyprus, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. Marking a milestone in BBC HD’s growth, the channel will now be available on all Turkish pay-TV platforms.
BBC Worldwide Executive Vice President for CEMA, Ian McDonough says “This is terrific news for us, and for viewers. Now, as well as BBC Entertainment and BBC World News, an even wider audience will be able to watch more of our world-class programming. This is yet another big step in our channels portfolio expansion throughout CEMA.”
