BBC Three

BBC Three

Replacing BBC Choice, BBC Three is the corporation's youth channel, available via digital platforms including Freeview. The channel is aimed at the 25 to 34-year-old age group, with much of its programming experimental, either in format or in trialling and training new talent. First launched on 9th February 2003, the channel ceased broadcasting on 16th February 2016, with the name becoming a brand of similarly youth-skewed content on BBC iPlayer. It re-launched as a channel in February 2022.
