bbcThe BBC has confirmed it is considering the launch of its own dedicated sports TV channel covering minority sports. Peter Salmon, director of BBC sport, said: “In the course of the next licence period, there should be a really good debate over the BBC and the diversity of its sports provision – including a specialist channel.

I think it would be good for the nation’s sporting life and good for the BBC as a public service broadcaster if we were in that business.” The BBC has been linked to such a channel several times in recent years but the plans have never before come to fruition.
