Guardian: BBC Three’s return to broadcast TV faces delay

The BBC’s plan to bring back BBC Three as a standalone television channel could be delayed, following concerns that the proposal might damage commercial rivals.

If it was a new BBC channel they might have a point, but its not is it?

Indeed. If it's a problem now, why wasn't it before when it was a linear channel?

I think that's precisely why Sky left the old slot free, so they can undo the Sky Nature move. They just want to make Nature more visible for the months left before BBC3 linear relaunch due, and make a point to OFCOM.

Re: Guardian: BBC Three’s return to broadcast TV faces delay

BBC3’s return to broadcast has been in the offing for a couple of years now. If Sky has filled its top 24 EPG slots in the past few months then they have done so in the full knowledge that Ofcom would require them to make further changes to allow for it. The regulator isn’t daft - they will see right through it.
