BBC HD Cruise Ship Channel
The BBC have announced they will be introducing a new Channel. BBC HD Cruise Ship. BBC HD will be exclusively for Cruise Ship Passengers. It will enable them to keep up to date with their favourite programmes while they are travelling the world.
It will show programmes such as Holby City, Casualty and Eastenders just days after they are broadcast on tv. It will be a mixed genre channel, so it won’t just be soaps. There will be drama, comedy and wildlife programmes.
‘We are delighted that our guests will be able to travel the world but still keep up with their favourite TV shows for that touch of home. BBC HD will be a superb addition to our in-cabin entertainment and I am sure will be welcomed by our guests on both P&O Cruises and Cunard’.
John Farrah from BBC HD said
In the global market no one has a greater range than the BBC. BBC HD is a bespoke channel for cruise ships that showcases the very best of the BBC in all genres’.
What do you think about this announcement? Do you like the thought of being able to watch Eastenders while you are cruising around the world? Or maybe you rather your holiday was a holiday and you like the thought of getting away from things like everyday tv? Let me know in the comments below.
