While prime are arseing about not delivering a decent product to everyone, and four dont even have plans to do it, BBC 3 has gone from the legacy linear broadcast model to totally online.

Since four target the same market here, I wonder if they will ever grow up to be a HD broadcaster or if it will just get switched off?

I find the move promising, the reason for BBC Three to move online is to save money and invest in more programmes.

 

I wished TVNZ did the same when they closed down TVNZ Heartland, put all the back content on TVNZ Ondemand,

 

3Now needs an overhaul, so I wont be surprised if they will be redoing their service, shut down the FOUR channel and put all content on 3NOW but then again having FOUR HD will be great.
And the FOUR brand needs an overhaul its been like that since 2011.

Not so sure its a demise yet - by a long way.  When it was announced in March 2014 the question was, what would replace the 13m/week audience puller?  In December 2014 the thing that the BBC announced it wanted to offer instead of BBC3????

 

BBC One+1.   Yep, replace different content with a time shifted channel.   Ironic demise of linear TV, huh?  But that was rejected by the Trust.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

It's gotta be another astonishing day - in this time of broadcast televisions demise.....  another channel launch is announced.  TVNZ Duke.

 

And to add insult to injury - its not in HD??!!!   Surely TVNZ should be forced to broadcast it in HD!

To be fair, library usage has dramatically dropped.
