New episodes of EASTENDERS, a staple of the BBC’s evening lineup, typically air on BBC One. This week’s schedule has undergone several changes.
Fans of the popular BBC One soap opera EastEnders are eager to learn what lies next for the residents of the Square. The program regularly airs on BBC One from Monday through Thursday, but viewers may have noticed that it is not scheduled to air this week. You can find all the information you need on Express.co.uk on how to watch EastEnders and the reasons it won’t be on its regular TV channel.
Why doesn’t BBC One have EastEnders?
Fans of the BBC soap opera EastEnders are in for a treat this week because Albert Square will be filled with drama.
The dramatic tales have drawn viewers to the show on weekday evenings to find out who is at the center of them.
The soap won’t be broadcast on BBC One during its customary time slot this week, so things will be a little unusual.
This is due to the numerous sporting events that take place over the summer.
EastEnders has been shifted to a different station this week because Wimbledon 2022 is being broadcast on several channels.
BBC iPlayer, the streaming service offered by BBC One, will have new episodes of the soap opera available for viewing.
On Mondays at 6am, it will make its streaming platform debut with all of its weekly episodes.
To avoid problems with Wimbledon, the relocation will start tonight, June 27, and last until mid-August.
This means that viewers will be able to tune in when the episodes air on BBC Two or watch the show whenever it’s convenient on BBC iPlayer.
Despite switching from BBC One to BBC Two, the soap opera will still air every day at the same time, at 7.30 p.m., from Monday through Thursday.
The Wimbledon event is being broadcast live throughout the day on BBC One and BBC Two.
The Mitchell family will be at the center of the drama this summer as Phil (Steve McFadden) makes a foe in jail.
As he worries whether this is the end, fans will be wondering if his days are just numbers.
Sam (Kim Medcalf) is back in the Square, but she seems to be pursuing a contentious goal.
After his awful attack, Ben (Max Bowden) also seems to be having trouble, and his family is concerned that he will lose control.
When his family unexpectedly shows up elsewhere on the Square, Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) is in for a surprise.
He quickly learns that secrets have been concealed from him, and there will undoubtedly be consequences.
This summer will be turbulent in Albert Square due to the revelation of terrible facts and rising tensions.
Twitter has being used by viewers to discuss the revamped timetable.
“Silly” pulling #EastEnders off of @BBCOne for #Wimbledon2022 since there won’t be many British players and there won’t be many viewers, according to @MattZeeMiller. “Be happy leaving Wimbledon on bbc2!”
Adam added: “@BBCiPlayer and @bbceastenders.” Come on #EastEnders, you seem to be trying to derail the ratings.
Such a shame, considering how excellent EastEnders is right now. Instead of moving Wimbledon to BBC2, you ought to have kept it on BBC1.
Not the best news for the ailing soap, said @cleanfeed ttvr.
