BBC 3 to be axed.

How can the Beeb justify axing BBC 3?
It's a great channel, it has some brilliant programmes.
How about ditching BBC 4? Full of repeats that nobody watches..  or how about BBC Parliament.. what a pointless channel.
How about Radio 4 and 5 extra?
Or BBC Arabic, or BBC Japan?
What do I get for my tv licence?

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

Agree 100% there, BBC3 is the best thing from the BBC in years.

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

I'd also prefer 3 to be saved. Who on earth thought it would be a good idea to keep 4 and have a missing 3?
Oh and Family Guy and American Dad are on 3!
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

The BBC have other channels to put repeats on though.  Like the aptly named YESTERDAY.

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

I've never actually wittingly tuned in to BBC4 but have been hooked on one or two programs once there but have to agree that BBC3 offer much more.

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

And not to mention they are axing BBC3, to put on BBC1 +1 in it's place.

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

Not a proper feasible explanation for the unjustified axing of BBC3
I also agree with the above the BBC4 should be the 1 to be axed

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

Well I think BBC 3 is rubbish!! So there. I really enjoy BBC 4  and guess it maybe an age thing (or just my taste). Having said that, most of the BBC output is on iPlayer so you can still view the programmes from BBC 3 that way.

Re: BBC 3 to be axed.

Family Guy & American Dad are never on the I Player as I believe part of the deal BBC signed to allow them to show both programs forbids it.
Not that it matter's much as BBC 3 must have repeated episodes of both about 25+ times  Roll eyes
Must be time for Family Guy - Blue Harvest & American Dad - Stan of Arabia to be show yet again, they haven't been on for a few weeks.
Merge both channels together as there isn't enough new programs to fill 2 channels as it is, stick the BBC 4 shows on Mon to Thur, then stick the BBC 3 shows on Fri to Sun.

What a great way to waste limited bandwidth.
