The BBC has confirmed that BBC Three will move online on February 16th.
In November the BBC Trust approved proposals to move BBC Three online as part of cost-cutting moves at the corporation.
It was agreed on the condition the channel's long-form programmes would be shown on BBC One and BBC Two, which is likely to account for around two hours a week.
On 16 February BBC Three will become more of a promotional channel letting people know about content that can be found online.
The BBC Three TV channel will go dark in the weeks following.
