Re: BBC to switch off the red button early next year

Doesnt BBC 4 already time share with one of the childrens channels ?

 As for cost cuting, why not look at the radio operations, couldnt they close Radio 5 on AM, and move it to Radio 1's FM frequency's and in turn move Radio 1 to online ( as per BBC Three) and digital, possibly even merging BBC Three and Radio 1

As I said it shares bandwidth with Cbeebies. Three used to share with CBBC

Again transmission is a small part of operational costs, so there's little money to be saved by doing so
