Well the government has extended the consultation process but that news was around last week. It's not put a stop to BBC3/4 and other new services - just Ms Jowell is still considering what to do.

This is the story from Media Guardian which seems to sum it all up correctly ..

Why do we need a BBC 3 & 4? Choice and Knowledge names are fine and have more meaning.

Because Choice and Knowledge have had a rubbish reputation since launch and by completely rebranding, they can almost start again. Besides, people may be more likely to think 'what's on BBC3' while watching the other two channels - honest!

Cheers, Asa
