The BBC is re-contracting to replace/upgrade the system used to schedule the linear Television channels, with the potential extension to non-linear channels.

In May 2016 a new contract was put in place to replace the current television scheduling system with a new package, WHATS’On developed by MediaGeniX. The new system needs to go live by March 2018 when the current contract ends.
