BBC World Service in Hong Kong
- The BBC World Service is still available 24 hours a day online for listeners in Hong Kong – and on RTHK FM Radio 4 overnight
- World Service English language radio is now available to listeners in Hong Kong on DTH broadcasts via Telstar 18
- Listeners can also access BBC World Service 24 hours a day via the BBC iPlayer radio app and the RTHK Radio 4 website
To help mitigate this change, the BBC has secured carriage for BBC WSE programming on the Telstar 18 DTH satellite platform, allowing those with a domestic satellite dish to receive BBC World Service continuously.
RTHK has retained BBC WSE overnight (from 2300 to 0700 local time) on RTHK’s FM frequency Radio 4 (FM 97.6). RTHK has also agreed to consider including some BBC World Service English programmes in their daytime schedules.
BBC WSE remains available 24 hours a day online at bbcworldservice.com, via the BBC iPlayer radio app and on the RTHK Radio 4 website.
