BBC three

Can we get rid of BBC three now please? It's been defunct for ages!

Re: BBC three

106 is still there for 2 reasons.

1) As a quick link through to BBC iPlayer

2) To carry the metadata that allows people with any remaining recordings of BBC3 to continue viewing them. When the "grace" period for viewing recordings runs out on 4th October, I think it likely the channel will either disappear or be reallocated.

Re: BBC three

It's gone, hasn't it? It's channel number, 163, has been taken by BBC4 and, in turn, 164 is now Universal HD.

Re: BBC three

Ahhh. That seems reasonable then. I didn't realise that recordings wouldn't play otherwise
