UKTV's channels are available via satellite and cable in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
Most programmes on UKTV's channels are repeat broadcasts of BBC productions (although the entertainment channels also feature programmes made by other companies) and the channels themselves are operated by BBC Broadcast (recently bought by Creative Broadcast Services from the BBC) and played out from BBC Television Centre in London.
None of the UKTV channels operates in widescreen — programmes made in widescreen are always horizontally cropped into 14:9 — and factual programmes are almost always cut for commercial timing although dramas and comedies are not.
