Channels & Streaming

Reaching audiences directly

Our businesses include the international BBC-branded channels, and a partnership in BritBox International. 

A home-from-home for BBC content abroad

Headed up by Rebecca Glashow, CEO of Global Distribution, the Channels & Streaming business covers broadcast and on-demand services.

We run 35 BBC-branded wholly-owned and operated channels, available in 215 countries and offering over 9,500 broadcast hours and some 1,500 titles. These range from BBC Earth which specialises in high-end natural history and factual shows, all the way through drama, entertainment and travel, to CBeebies for younger audiences.

BBC Studios also co-owns channels with other broadcasting partners, like BBC AMERICA with AMC Networks, BBC Earth with Sony in India and Corus Entertainment for BBC Canada.

Informing, educating and entertaining...on demand

In collaboration with ITV, BritBox caters for fans of British shows in eight countries, including the USA, Canada, UK and Australia. Digital streaming service BBC Select is available on Amazon and Apple TV+, with a focus on culture, politics and ideas. 

BBC Player, BBC Studios’ multi-genre subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service, is available in Singapore and Malaysia, and the commercial website, online home of BBC news and feature content internationally, has a growing reporting team and ambitious plans to develop services for audiences outside the UK.
