BBC World News announces full encryption across APAC region

The BBC has announced the encryption of the SD feed of its award-winning 24 hour international news channel, BBC World News, across the APAC region.

According to the press release, the move aims to bring the SD feed in line with the HD offering and counter piracy by ensuring that consumers can now only view the channel through approved suppliers. The encryption has been through a two month testing phase and will be enforced across all 119 sites in the region by the end of January.

Colin Lawrence, BBC World News Director of Distribution, said, “We are constantly looking for ways to improve the service we offer our partners and affiliates  across APAC and this is the latest in a long line of investments we’re making to further strengthen our international news offering in the region and ensure that our commercial relationships are fully protected. ”
In September, a new state-of-the-art digital newsroom and studio opened in Singapore and saw all of BBC World News’ Asia broadcasts switch to HD. The facilities, which are the main hub for BBC World News and bbc.com in Asia, bring the BBC’s news, business and digital teams together. 

The BBC also appointed Karishma Vaswani as its new Asia Business Correspondent and launched bbc.jp - a Japanese-language version of its global website bbc.com.
