Well it's 2/7, not 24/7 - the BBC's trust requirement for all long form content to be on BBC1/2 equates to just two hours of shows a week. It's around the 5 hour a week mark of new content on BBC3 at the moment, and that's after 18 months of the channel being run down and not including live events, films etc. Even pre-BBC3 the audience was better served with 90 minutes at 6pm on BBC2 plus an evening or two a week from 9-10.30pm.
The CBBC extended hours seem strange too - they're saying 7-8pm will be target at 6-9 year olds and 8-9pm at 9-12 year olds. If it's only repeats in the slot, as previously stated, seems really stupid to switch from what I assume it content aimed at the older audience in the 6pm hour to younger audiences for an hour. It just highlights how ill-thought out the plans are, and also how 12-18 year olds aren't being served by the corporation at all.
