With Killing Eve, Fleabag, RuPaul etc. all airing on BBC1 anyway, is there really a point to this?

I'm here for it anyway though, RPDR UK for S3 will hopefully have a 9PM time slot and get Love Island S3 level ratings.

At the time

the Government wanted/demanded the BBC to Cut Back

Back in 2015



The linear channel ceased operations
on 16 February 2016, replaced by
a BBC Three-branded streaming channel on the iPlayer.



Before Brexit Vote
David Cameron had full control
until the Vote on June 2016

...I quite like it online, I have to say...I was watching something on BBC1 the other day and I was trying to pause it for ages while I popped to do something and even changed the batteries in the remote...then I realise it was on Tv, not catch up....online is more flexible, I feel...

No many young
would watch it on a TV.



Its the BBC plan to ask youngers to return to BBC.


That BBC TAX is going to change in the Future.

If they want younger viewers to watch their Channels then they need to make Shows with a bit of life in them.

That'd be my advice to them.
