WETA UK introduces Washington audiences to the best in British television when the channel launches June 2 with Britain’s #1 comedy — Outnumbered — and the forerunner of America’s modern forensic television dramas — Waking the Dead. They are among the series that will be making their Washington, D.C., premiere on WETA UK, the newest television service from WETA Television — the flagship public broadcasting station in the nation’s capital and home to WETA TV 26, WETA Kids and WETA HD.
Classical WETA’s online station VivaLaVoce presents classical vocal music in all its forms, from the Middle Ages to the present, 24 hours per day. Featuring Opera, Choral Music, and Art Song, the station offers something for everyone who loves vocal classical music.
