BBC confirms launch date for new Scotland channel

BBC Scotland will officially launch on 24th February

The BBC has confirmed its new BBC Scotland channel will launch on Sunday 24th February.

The channel was given approval by Ofcom in April of this year. It was first announced by director general Tony Hall last year. 

The channel is part of the BBC’s additional £40 million-a-year investment into the BBC in Scotland, and the initial budget is just over £32 million. 

BBC Scotland will be multiplatform with a home on iPlayer and connected to BBC Scotland’s full range of Radio, Online, Social and other TV services.
