EastEnders repeats to move to rebranded Watch channel

This week, BBC Three is making the move to online only – meaning that the EastEnders repeats will be moving too!

The final ever EastEnders repeat on BBC Three aired last night (15th February) at the usual time of 10pm, but from tonight (16th February), these repeats will be airing on the re-branded Watch Channel, now known as W.

These nightly repeats will air in the usual slot at 10pm, but will run for 10 minutes longer than normal, until 10:40pm, due to adverts.

This will then be once again repeated at 10:20am, on the following day.

You can find W on Sky number 109, Virgin number 124, or BT & Talk Talk number 407.

Unfortunately for some, W is only available through satellite TV such as Sky and on cable through Virgin Media. Make sure to check whether or not you have the channel to ensure you don’t miss out. If you don’t have any of the aforementioned ways to watch, and don’t wish to pay for this, make sure that you record the episode on BBC One or catch-up on BBC iPlayer!

In addition to the nightly repeats moving to W, they’re also reviving the weekly omnibus – which the BBC had previously axed!

This will air on Saturdays at 2pm until 4pm, and looks likely that it’ll then be repeated again on the following day.

W will begin to air the EastEnders repeats from TONIGHT (16th February)!
