3 years ago BBC3 was axed as a linear channel & moved online to make it more relevant to the yoof of today - the target audience

Now BBC3 programming is to be moved onto BBC1 in the late evening as the viewing figures are awful (8% of the target audience)


BBC News cut to give BBC Three a linear TV slot - a516digital


Its probably only a matter of time until BBC3 gets relaunched as a proper channel

No surprise to me as I did not think it would last this long,
Another silly idea by BBC planning,

Next to come will be renaming the National BBC TV channels ?

BBC Light TV,
BBC Home TV,
BBC Third TV :-rofl2
BBC World News

A bit like AM radio was 60 years ago :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

No BBC staff left round here since Kingswood Warren shut down . Only the scavengers, Capita , parading under the brand logo 'TV Licensing' since the top brass baled out a few years back.

The sooner the corporation checks on forward promises of a revenue stream by the goon squad and the actual returns in the last decade the better.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Since BBC3 went from being a TV channel to a youtube-style thing, I haven't watched it at all, if they want to have a streaming platform, then shut down all the channels and go full-on with their iplayer thingy, would save a lot of money then... :-rofl2

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Looking at the promo page for the channel one would think they are selling cancer.

Oh yes very educational, heaven help the yoof of today when they actually need to start taking responsibility for things


I am surprised the BBC is able to exist with it's complete non adherance to the terms of it's royal charter. Their complete lack of impartiality and total bias in many areas, people find offensive and off putting. They constantly shoot themselves in the foot and the tax payer picks up the bill or they just go cap in hand to their biggest sponsors in the Middle East.

If they ever choose on line for all TV radio over Satellite & DTT then with my current supplier VM I would have no TV half a dozen times a year with their so called maintenance breaks to improve your service :-rofl2

No. Never watched it online... Was never planning on doing it either! There's enough rubbish on traditional TV to justify BBC3's online-only presence.

Three (originally BBC Choice inspired, which it replaced) had quite a few brilliantly commissioned / purchased programmes in its hey-day, which I would look forward to, despite being outside the suggested demographic.
Monkey Dust, Bad Education, Family Guy, Man Stroke Woman, In The Flesh to name a few.
Three also added repeats of existing shows I'd missed first time round from the main BBC channels.

When I look at what it currently or has offered recently, I'm not filled with anywhere near the same desire to drop what I'm doing, nor set the VCR to record.
