BBC launches four new channels in Sweden

The Local is not responsible for the content of blog comments.

Starting this week, TV viewers in Sweden will be able to access four new BBC channels: BBC Entertainment, BBC Knowledge, BBC Lifestyle, as well as a HD channel.

The British broadcaster has signed deals with Swedish operators Canal Digital, Com Hem, Telia and Tele2, Dagens Media reports.

BBC Entertainment will replace BBC Prime, a channel described by the broadcaster as “too non-specific. BBC Entertainment will do what it says on the tin.”

But are the new channels any good? Discuss.
