CBBC will go back to closing at 7pm according to Broadcast. It also says "BBC3 will only air pre-watershed content for the 13+ age group until 9pm." which I think is their weird way of saying there won't be shows for the CBBC age group between 7pm and 9pm.

Here’s the full press release. The channel will be on air from 7pm to 4am.

Pleased the BBC has seen sense and has reversed the decision.

Just think back to the statement the BBC made when they chose to take the channel off terrestrial. Now everyone collectively roll their eyes. Rolling Eyes

That'll make a certain 'BringBack' happy. Wink

Now the question is, does this mean anything for BBC Four?

What happened to 'we're not going to launch any new linear channels'?

I thought it had been announced already that BBC Four would no longer commission its own programmes and become a archive and forigen language programme channel, sport's coverage would switch back to BBC Three
