BBC Internationally

Couldn't see a thread so thought it worth starting it on more generic terms to invite discussion about how the BBC is set up in various countries.

The BBC have announced this week they're launching BBC Nordic and BBC Nordic+ in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.    BBC Nordic will be one linear channel replacing BBC Brit and BBC Earth, with BBC Nordic+ the new streaming service to support that.  

Seems the service concentrates on Factual and Entertainment - BritBox is also available in the area, where the BBC is a 50% stakeholder with ITV, so I guess that is where they put the drama.   I don't think there is a nordic version of BBC First. 

Quote:Linear channel BBC Nordic brings together the very best of BBC BRIT and BBC Earth and will replace them in the current channel mix. BBC Nordic+, a new on-demand service will enable viewers to delve deeper into the BBC shows they enjoy from the linear channel and discover new favourites.

With a long-standing history in the five Nordic market, the new channel and on-demand service have been borne out of research into local audiences tastes and the content they most enjoy. They will offer a tailored line up of the brightest factual and feel-good entertainment series from the BBC, making it easier for Nordic audiences to find their favourite programmes and to discover new shows.

Looking further afield and at BBC Select in the US, where the great logo change of 2021-20?? began, and seems they focus only on documentaries too.   And BBC America itself now is nothing of the sort - they screen the Attenborough documentaries all day on a Saturday and Graham Norton on a Sunday night but other than that it's film and reruns of US dramas.
