W

A general entertainment subscription channel owned and operated by UKTV. The channel airs a number of acquired programs both from back catalogues of other broadcasters and drama series.

Original hits for the channel include 'Dynamo: Magician Impossible'.

The channel rebranded as W in February 2016, with a raft of new and returning original commissions alongside a raft of new and returning exclusive acquisitions. The channel also became the home of repeat airings of BBC One soap 'EastEnders' on the night of their original airing on February 16th 2016 as BBC Three, the current home of the repeats shut down as a linear channel on this date.
