1. When BBC Four launches, will BBC Choice rebrand as BBC 3?
2. Will shows such as 60secs be on the new BBC 3 channel?
3. Why is the government refusing BBC 3 when it allowed BBC Choice, if they are going to be simular?
1. No I doubt it very much
2. Yes - in the proposals there is a 15 minutes news show
3. The government refused permission because they didn't think the original plans were different enough from what was already available. The government didn't have to approve BBC Choice - it's only recently that the government decided all new digital channels had to be approved. Also the new BBC3 will be quite different from BBC Choice.
