The BBC’s international news channel BBC World has secured its first US distribution deal and will launch in New York on a digital cable TV network later this month, the Guardian reports.

A rebranded BBC World News will be available first in New York, after signing a distribution deal with cable operator Cablevision. Previously, only a 30-minute BBC World News bulletin was available on public service stations in the US – now BBC World will be available around the clock.
