AN ENGLISH AF­FAIR

Hi tv­plus. Please tell me more about the new BBC chan­nels – LOLA ABRA­HAMS, CAPE TOWN

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

It’s out with the old and in with the new. BBC is giv­ing their en­tire brand a facelift by scrap­ping BBC En­ter­tain­ment (DStv chan­nel 120) and BBC Knowl­edge (184) from Tues­day 1 Septem­ber. In its place, BBC Brit will re­place BBC En­ter­tain­ment, bring­ing view­ers fac­tual en­ter­tain­ment that’s more aimed at male view­ers, like gameshows Point­less (2009- cur­rent) and Duck Quacks Don’t Echo (2014- cur­rent). BBC Earth will take over from Knowl­edge as the na­ture des­ti­na­tion of choice. Also on the list of new­com­ers is BBC First (119), which will be avail­able to Pre­mium sub­scribers only from Sun­day 18 Oc­to­ber. BBC First will air ex­clu­sive se­ries such as Down­ton Abbey (2010- cur­rent), Doc­tor Who (2005cur­rent) and Wolf Hall (2015). Mean­while, BBC Lifestyle, CBee­bies and BBC World News will carry on as usual.
