BBC Entertainment India and CBeebies shutting down

BBC Worldwide is shutting down two of its
entertainment channels,"BBC Entertainment India"
and "CBeebies" in India. The channels are to be
withdrawn and will stop airing by 30 November
The BBC World News remains and will be available in India and continue to grow its
distribution in the Indian market.
BBC Worldwide claimed that the Indian market
continues to remain challenging for pay TV
channels, the delays in digitization and the need
for the channel operators to pay cable platforms for carriage has been the reason for BBC to shut
down its channel.
BBC Entertainment, which made its way in India
when it was launched in pan-Asia in 2009, will
continue to air in other Asian territories including
Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and CBeebies will be available in
Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia,
Malaysia, Thailand and Philippines.
However on the other hand, BBC announced the
launch of the BBC Hindi TV programme, Global
India, on five channels of ETVNetwork thus expanding its Hindi footprint.
From Friday 2 November, the BBC’s new TV
programme in Hindi will air weekly at prime time
on ETV Bihar, Jharkhand, ETV Uttar Pradesh,
Uttrakhand, ETV Rajasthan, ETV Madhya Pradesh,
Chhattisgarh and ETV Urdu.
