* '''BBC Brit''': A bid to split up BBC Entertainment into something more manageable. Apparently this channel is to carry repeats of older British shows (including, for some reason, Series/TopGear repeats) and shows that are dubbed "Too British" or "not popular enough" to be on BBC First, or even programs that otherwise airs on competing channels like E4 in the UK (like, say, Series/BadRobots). The channel will replace BBC Entertainment in markets where BBC Entertainment was available. In Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the channel is launched as a traditional pay TV channel. However, in Asia, the channel's availability is limited to content in the BBC Player (the BBC's Asian rebranded version of [=iPlayer=]), which itself is only available in Singapore.

* '''BBC First''': Top billing shows like Series/{{Sherlock}} and Series/DoctorWho will go to this channel, the other half of the BBC Entertainment split. The channel will replace BBC Entertainment in markets where BBC Entertainment was available. In Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the channel is launched as a traditional pay TV channel. However, in Asia, the channel is launched as a close-loop Video-on-Demand service available through select Pay TV providers. The BBC pledges to make content available on the channel within 48 hours of airing in the UK.

* '''BBC Knowledge''': The BBC's take on The Discovery Channel and the National Georgraphic Channel. Commonly known as the home of Series/TopGear, they also air several Canadian and British reality TV shows like the Canadian version of UndercoverBoss, as well as plenty of their own documentaries. Available in HD in certain markets. Also the name of the UK digital channel that preceded BBC Four from 1998-2002. Apparently has been replaced by ''BBC Earth'' in most markets, perhaps due to Series/TopGear stopping production from Jeremy Clarkson getting fired, which in turn caused fellow presenters James May & Richard Hammond, as well as producer Andy Wilman to quit.

* '''BBC America''': A cable network in the United States, which is the BBC in name only, being a privately run channel (although half-owned by BBC Worldwide, the other half being owned by [[Creator/{{AMC}} AMC Networks]], and before them, Discovery Communications) that shows programmes from a variety of makers, including the real BBC's rivals ITV, Channel 4 and E4, most notably ''Series/TheInbetweeners'', ''Series/PeepShow'' and ''{{Series/Skins}}''. The name in America basically just means "British!". The channel does run some of the BBC's most popular programs, such as ''Series/TopGear'', ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' and, of course ''Series/DoctorWho'' - all among of American extended cable's highest rated and critically acclaimed shows. It acquired the first-run rights to ''Series/DoctorWho'' (which they initially only had repeat rights to), gaining them in a deal with their original American rights holders, Sci Fi Channel, later called Creator/{{Syfy}}. Unsurprisingly, ''Doctor Who'' is now BBC America's highest rated show. It also has American science fiction programmes such as ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', ''Series/TheXFiles'' and the 2003-2009 ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', but it devotes most of its day to British programming. It began to air original dramatic programming in 2012 with ''Copper'', with 2013's ''Series/OrphanBlack'' proving to be an unexpected breakout hit for the channel; it was soon broadcast in the UK on BBC Three.
