It has been announced that BBC Three is to return to TV next year. (Announced in February 2021)
BBC Three shared the same space as CBBC and was was on air from 7:00pm when CBBC shutdown.
As CBBC now shuts down at 9pm and not 7pm, does anybody know if;
BBC Three will now start at 9pm
or CBBC will end and BBC Three will start at 7pm
or from 7pm to 9pm one channel will be on HD only and one on normal definition only.
or some other channel will move from the PSB multiplex (BBCA)
