BBC Entertainment & CBeebies BBC launched

BBC has launched BBC Entertainment and CBeebies BBC from May 2nd 2007. BBC has made a mark in this region with "BBC World" a channel which focuses on news and current affairs has been in operation for a considerable amount of time.

This is the first non news themed channel launched by BBC in this region. CBeebies BBC is a dual language channel targeting children aged 6 and under. BBC Entertainment on the other hand is a fully entertainment oriented channel and promises to bring the best of british entertainment programmes to this region. Initially the two channels will be available for 12 hours a day meaning that CBeebies BBC will air from 6am to 6pm and BBC Entertainment will air from 6pm to 6am.

At the moment BBC Entertainment and CBeebies BBC is available on indian DTH pay television provider Tata SKY.

We hope that Sri Lankan pay television companies will introduce this channel for the benefit of local television viewers.
