ABOUT

BBC Brit replaced the now-defunct BBC Entertainment channel on 1 September, 2015. The channel is Maleskewing but with broader appeal, it blends expertise with entertainment and fact with fun.

The channel is the exclusive home of Top Gear on DStv and covers a rich variety of subjects: cars, science, adventure, business, food, life-changing moments, extreme characters, quirky eccentrics, music, sport and comedy.

A blend of the meaningful and the meaningless, it's a place to learn and laugh at the hands of some of the most endearing and quirky characters on television.

Originally in Standard Definition, the channel converted to High Definition on 5 October, 2017.
