Comcast is carrying BBC America on it's digital tier; it's being distributed to cable and satellite providers by Discovery.

The bulk of BBC America's programming is in the entertainment realm. They simulcast BBC News with BBC World (which isn't presently available in the US) in the early morning and at 6P ET.

BBC is currently trying to get BBC World in the US; that particular channel is currently available across most of the rest of the planet.

I'm no major fan of BBC's reporting style, but I'd certainly have them on my satellite system (gotta see what the "bad guys" are saying about us on an ongoing basis).

I find their attacks on Tony Blair to be both deceitful and offensive. It is nothing but a leftist propaganda machine.

Actually, BBC America's nuked even the 6pm airing. They only air it for a half hour at 6 am, 7 am and 8 am.

BBC America is easily the worst-programmed channel in the entire country. I don't give a damn how good "Changing Rooms" is, you can't run it SEVENTEEN TIMES IN A 24-HOUR PERIOD.

I like BBC America. And I'm slowly getting addicted to The Office.
