i think it's disgusting there wanting to revert it back as i think it's been a success they've brought back The Story of Tracy Beaker in that slot and these alot to it and kids enjoy watching shows like the next step from the beginning and that etc... and CITV also go till 9pm and come on who really cares about BBC3 anymore cause i don't not as a tv channel you might well say they only got rid of it to save bit of money and now they want to bring it back but wait till tv license goes then it be gone again i bet ya


You may feel disenfranchised once you reach BBC Three's demo and find you want a PSB alternative to the other youth skewed channels provided by the commercial sector. CBBC is only losing two hours of airtime for which it gained after Three closed in the first place.

Fortunately, there's a little service called the iPlayer which allows kids to watch CBBC content at 7:01am, 7:01pm, heck even 2:30am in the morning and anytime in between!

To make the youth content more easily accessible and to ensure that cbbc viewers make the jump to bbc three instead of going to Netflix and not coming back, therefore less people would pay the license fee in future years.

If you’re so bothered, BBC Three will have programme for younger teens from 7pm to 9pm, and no doubt this will mean some CBBC programmes will get a repeat run.

and come on who really cares about BBC3 anymore cause i don't


That seems to be a big part of the reason to do this. If people have more access to the programmes rather than them being hidden away on iPlayer people might care more.

The "cause I don't" part of your argument doesn't help it. As a fourtysomething with no kids I don't really care about CBBC or CBeebies. That's not really a good argument to want them to be closed down.

Bringing it back isn't costing much money at all and BBC3 is far more popular than you are making it out to be. It's not the end of the world having CBBC finish at 7. It always used to and no-one complained.

Just because you prefer CBBC to BBC3 doesn't mean that the other has no right existing. It's not like CBBC is being replaced entirely. Children can still use the iPlayer.

Giving BBC3 broadcast space will help more people to learn about its content and increase its viewership.

CBBC's demo is more likely to be watching their content online compared to those who watch BBC Three as been proven as Three became an online brand.

Didn't CBBC only air repeats after 7pm anyway?

I suspect most secondary school kids would rather watch grown up BBC3 (or E4, ITV2 etc) than childish CBBC anyway. Or that's what they'd tell their mates anyway.
