Premium channel debuts Jan. 24 with Planet Earth II premiering on Jan. 28.
Canadian TV viewers are getting a new specialty channel thanks to BBC Worldwide North America and Blue Ant Media.
Premium channel BBC Earth will launch Jan. 24, 2017 with “the BBC’s unparalleled natural world programming” .
That includes programs like The Hunt and Planet Earth II, which will debut Jan. 28. It’s a followup to the 2006 documentary series Planet Earth, which was the first nature documentary to be shot in high definition.
The new episodes have been shot in ultra high definition, which executive producer Mike Gunton has said in online interviews will change the game for how documentaries are produced.
The commercial-free BBC Earth replaces Blue Ant’s radX channel and will be broadcast in HD.
