Today the BBC announced that BBC Three will become an BBC iPlayer exclusive to aid cutting costs. The cut comes as the BBC tries to meet its cost-saving targets of £100 million, however this isn’t a definite decision and can still be changed. The BBC Trust has to approve the move before it becomes official. Jack Whitehall, Russel Cane and other comedians took to Twitter to express their concern for the removal of the channel.
Along with the change that might be happening, BBC One is to gain a +1 channel.
