BBC Three sera de retour en tant que chaîne de télévision l'année prochaine
The network that launched ‘Fleabag’ has only been available online since 2016

BBC Three, the digital platform that’s brought the public shows such as Sac à puces et Normal People, is returning as a TV channel in 2022.

Jeudi (25 novembre), media regulator Ofcom officially confirmed a February launch for BBC Three.

The channel will be available on Freeview, Ciel, Virgin and Freesat with EPG numbers to be confirmed at a later date.

BBC Three first launched as a broadcast channel in February 2003. It was on air for 13 years until February 2016 when it moved online to follow audience habits.

It is now being reinstated as a TV channel with the aim of reaching underserved youth audiences and an emphasis placed on original programming.

Dans un rapport, Ofcom said: “We carefully assessed the BBC’s plans, alongside evidence and feedback gathered during our consultation.

“We concluded that the channel’s re-launch will help the BBC to increase its reach among younger underserved viewers – particularly those from lower-income homes, and audiences who live outside London and the South East.

“To ensure the channel is distinctive, au moins 75 per cent of hours broadcast each year must be original programmes, commissioned by the BBC for UK viewers. We are also requiring the channel to deliver first-run UK content across a mix of genres, as well as weekday news programmes.”

‘Gavin and Stacey’ first aired on BBC Three

BBC Three has launched many beloved shows over the years, de Gavin & Stacey dans 2007 et People Just Do Nothing dans 2014 à Sac à puces dans 2016 et Normal People dans 2020.

“We will work hand in hand with iPlayer to provide a broad offering that is representative of the whole of the UK and we will continue to back new talent and bold ideas.

“This approach will bring the audience a distinctive mix of programs that are there to entertain, inspire and challenge thinking, at a pivotal and exciting time to be young in the UK.”
