According to the broadcaster, a new live and breaking news team will offer globally accessible coverage of breaking international news and, when appropriate, a domestic-only stream for UK-specific news events.
During UK daylight hours, the channel will be transmitted from London, followed by Singapore and Washington, D.C.
It’s anticipated that the channel, which will be called BBC News, would debut in April 2023.
