Launch dates[edit]

BBC Lifestyle first launched in Singapore on mio TV in July 2007. It is also available in Hong Kong on now TV, in Poland on the Cyfrowy Polsat digital satellite platform, where it launched in December 2007. On DStv in South Africa and on Orbit Showtime in the Arab World since September 2008. It has since also launched in the Scandinavian countries in November 2008 when it replaced BBC Prime on Canal Digital, Com Hem, Telia Digital-TV and FastTV.

On June 2009, hollywoodreporter.com cites the lack of viewership on SingTel's mio TV that BBC terminated the right to air BBC Lifestyle, CBBC, CBeebies and BBC Knowledge under permission registered British Broadcasting Corporation from 19 March 2009 to 15 December 2009.[1]. BBC has since sourced StarHub TV as an alternative deal thus, BBC Lifestyle is now on channel 432 on StarHub TV

BBC Lifestyle is wholly owned by BBC Worldwide.
