BBC Three to go online only ON February 16th

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.
