BBC HD is a bespoke global entertainment channel produced exclusively for cruise ships and the wider maritime market

You can now access an increased range of TV channels to enjoy in your cabin, including all your favourite soaps, dramas and natural history programmes on the newly created BBC HD, a bespoke global entertainment channel exclusive to P&O Cruises and our sister brand Cunard for the month of January. You’ll be able to watch at a time that suits you, as the shows are repeated three times within 24 hours. Settle back to catch favourites such as Planet Earth 1, Top Gear, Silent Witness, Call The Midwife and top soaps such as EastEnders and Holby City*, along with many more.


More new in-cabin TV channels include ITV Choice (Coronation Street, Doc Martin, I’m a Celebrity…) and Prime One, which shows popular US titles such as Modern Family, NCIS and New Girl. There are also two new film channels, so if you fancy catching a movie you’ll now have loads more to choose from.


P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: ‘We are delighted that our guests will be able to travel the world but still keep up with their favourite television shows for that touch of home.’


We will also be continuing to provide an extensive range of sporting events on Sport 24, including top matches from the Premier League, all major golf and tennis events and the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and play-offs, while all ships on World Cruises will feature itinerary-specific documentaries so that you can really immerse yourself in the culture and geography of your upcoming ports of call.



* Top soaps such as EastEnders and Holby City are screened within 2-3 days of transmission on BBC One.
