Thank you for your messages to BBC Worldwide Channels in South Africa.
As explained to you in previous replies regarding Holby City, careful consideration is taken when planning the schedules for our channels and the decision to remove Holby City from the BBC Entertainment schedule was not taken lightly. Our research and ratings data provided by DStv told us that Holby City was not working in South Africa.
When planning our schedules for the channel we have a commitment to both viewers in providing quality entertainment and also to DStv which, like other platforms, sets us specific performance criteria to achieve in order that their viewers are getting the best from their channels.
There are no plans for Holby City to return to BBC Entertainment and this series is not available to watch online in South Africa. We appreciate that it can be upsetting for some viewers when one of their favourite programmes is removed from the schedule and we do hope you will find other programmes to enjoy on BBC Entertainment.
