  • only problem we need to sort out is how are we going to give services to the general public. We need public libraries for the local people to access the free internet and so on…

The BBC has aired the BBC World Service in Burma since 1940, but this will be the first time that it has launched its bouquet of pay channels in the country. The move will mean that a raft of drama and comedy series will be available via BBC Entertainment and a number of British preschool series will be available through CBeebies.

Mark Whitehead, senior vice president and general manager of BBC Worldwide Channels Asia, said: “We are very pleased to be part of Burma’s growing economy, and excited to be delivering our wide range of highly rated and award-winning programming – from programmes specially designed for pre-schoolers, to the best of UK comedy and drama and high quality international news to new viewers.”
