BBC America will begin its high-definition simulcast channel on July 20 with the broadcast of science-fiction shows such as "Torchwood" and "Dr. Who," Multichannel News reports.


The network had wanted to start the HD channel last year, but needed time to develop the programming mix, the trade paper says, citing BBC Worldwide America President Garth Ancier.
