Military charity and media organisation BFBS will continue to try and maintain delivery of its services to entertain, inform, connect and champion the UK armed forces for as long as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic…
To maintain the safety of BFBS staff, most employees are working from home, but the core services are continuing to ensure we can support our military audience during this difficult time. Overseas, BFBS is working with partners to support the needs of specific military communities by installing satellite TV points into coronavirus isolation camps – as well as providing more set top boxes and radios where they are needed.
BFBS TV is running a full service for overseas audiences, with the best of what is on offer at home. Alongside the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, its specially-compiled BFBS Extra channel continues to provide a schedule of blockbuster entertainment and movie premieres.
As live sport is so important to the armed forces, where it exists, BFBS TV will continue to show it – as well as bringing you the best in other sporting coverage available courtesy of our relationships with the main sports providers here in the UK.
Forces News will continue for as long as possible with regular radio news bulletins and a short news summary at 12:30, together with a full half-hour of news at 17:30 on BFBS TV and Forces TV, focusing on the armed forces’ efforts to combat Covid-19.
