BBC Worldwide is growing its presence in Asia, with new channel launches in Taiwan and Thailand, and expansion in Indonesia.

It will launch BBC Knowledge, BBC Entertainment, BBC Lifestyle and children's channel CBeebies in Thailand in January.

The company has signed a deal with Taiwan's Chung Hwa Telecom to launch BBC Knowledge, BBC Lifestyle and BBC Entertainment on MOD, the company’s IPTV platform.

BBC Worldwide is also extending its reach in Indonesia, with BBC Lifestyle now available on NexMedia, alongside BBC Knowledge and CBeebies.
