The BBC’s commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, is to launch new 30 channels internationally from April 2008 and grow a high-definition outlet and an on-demand service in the US. The move will revolve around four thematic brands:

BBC Entertainment (with shows like Doctor Who) BBC Knowledge (with shows like Top Gear) BBC Lifestyle (with shows like What Not To Wear) CBeebies (with shows for kids like Teletubbies)

Let’s hope they’re better than the laziness that is BBC America. Slightly related: the FT reports that the head of new online video joint venture between NBC Universal and News Corporation has predicted that television companies will follow the film industry’s lead, by releasing TV shows simultaneously around the world.
