Their Twitter bio says 'Not even a real channel'


That doesn't really mean much in the context of whatever might happen in the future.

Wonder if BBC THREE keep the old idents

I think a BBC Three hybrid service could work well, 60 Seconds could easily work as a "on the run" program for those on social media and in a need of quick news, while this could go out TOTH on BBC Three every hour.

That, or turn Newsbeat into a TV program, tying the Radio 1 and BBC Three brands close together.

I definitely think a radically "new BBC Three" could work well enough if the BBC looked at what other youth oriented networks and brands across the world have already done:

NPO3 allows new talent in with the 3LAB experimentation platform, as well as including NPO Zapp (their children's network) in the experimentation on the same transponder space.
FLUX/QOOB , MTV Italia's attempt at a video-generated user platform while already done over here with MTV Flux in 2006 and shut down in 2008, can be done on BBC Three showcasing the independent talent of short film makers and animators across the UK far better than low quality "HD" cameras.
Adult Swim also involves it's audience in it's bumpers, programming, as well as engaging with them online through their online shows and podcasts.

But to be fair though, these are just a bunch of ambitious dreams that could easily boost the prescence of BBC Three and the budget, although bigger than last time, would probably require a much bigger boost, not anything the BBC would be willing to do and the last time BBC attempted to involve their audience was when flip phones and low-quality webcams were all the rage, with continuity announcers basically being... well, pretty abysmal
Do you even read these?

Bring back the blobs, that's what I say. And go back to that lovely navy-ish blue colour the channel had, not the garish pink.

The whole having to move BBC Four in Scotland to LCN 24 on Freeview could end up being a real gift for the BBC as presumably they'd move BBC Four there nationwide and then have BBC Three on channel 9. Obviously not as good as having channels 7 and 9 like they used to but better than it being on channel 55 where BBC Four currently is in Scotland.

So we’d have a situation where Sky are positioning an arts channel on a prominent LCN and the BBC push theirs down in favour on ents channel. Surely not.

BBC Four is to become a largely repeats channel so it would certainly make sense to have BBC Three, the channel they're spending more money on, in the prime position when they've got plenty of new shows to air. Also easier to target the young audience they're losing and want to recapture when they're higher up the EPG and nearer to ITV2 and E4.

I had almost forgotten about the plans to make BBC Four an ‘archive’ channel.

Actually, with that in mind, BBC Three getting the 7PM start time and BBC Four starting at 9PM doesn’t sound as unlikely as it otherwise would.
