BBC3 starts its transition to an online-only future
February 16, 2016
BBC3’s new life as an online-only channel will begin this evening, with the terrestrial signal being switched off by the end of February. The nascent channel’s first programme will be episode one of a new series of sitcom Cuckoo followed by the documentary film Life on Death Row. The terrestrial BBC3 will run for some time alongside in order to push audiences both to the online-only portal and also to help audiences find content shifted to other channels.
