BBC World News launches on-demand programming

BBC World News is offering a new suite of video on demand (VoD) content to its international distribution partners.

The content package includes more than 120 hours of the World News channel’s best-known long-form content strands, including HARDtalk, Click, The Travel Show, One Square Mile and Our World each year.

Partners can also choose to include specials and thematically grouped content, specifically commissioned for international audiences.

“The fact that we have award-winning long form content that sits alongside our world class news and current affairs has always been one of the things that makes BBC World News stand out against our competitors,” said BBC Global News’ director of distribution, Colin Lawrence.

“We know from the quantity and quality of our social media engagement that these programme brands are widely recognised and appreciated around the world.  As consumers increasingly demand content on their own terms, we’re pleased that we can now offer our partners a suite of programmes of this quality and range to serve their needs.”
