He explained that the corporation had "reached the point where salami-slicing would affect quality and distinctiveness.
Rather than seek to preserve a less good version of our past, we decided to focus on what we do best: from drama to taking i Player into the next generation." On 5 March 2014, the BBC announced several cost-savings proposals, subject to the approval of the BBC Trust.
In February 2014 at the Oxford Media Conference, BBC Director-General Tony Hall stated that as part of the ongoing "Delivering Quality First" initiative at the corporation (which, as motivated by the government freeze of television license fee costs, aims to reach £700 million in cost-savings across the BBC up to the end of the 2016–17 television season), the BBC was in the process of finalizing plans to make another £100 million in cuts to be announced the following month.
Believing that general budget cuts across the entire corporation would compromise the quality of its in-house productions—especially dramas, which he described as being the "essence" of the BBC—Hall stated that these cuts could require "hard decisions" to be made.
Conditions were imposed on other BBC properties to compliment the changes; BBC One and Two will be required to develop "distinctive programmes designed for younger audiences", as well as air repeats of all full-length programmes commissioned for BBC Three.
The Trust also approved related proposals to allow first-run and third-party content on i Player, and extend CBBC's broadcast day to p.m (CBBC signed off at p.m to conserve Freeview bandwidth for BBC Three) with a focus on an older youth audience.
While admitting BBC Three's recent success in targeting its demographic and its role as a launchpad for new talent, he argued that BBC Three was "a marginal channel with a small share of the overall television audience", and that "'Hard decisions' are just that.If the BBC is to have any hope of sustaining its quality core output then a sacrifice had to be made." The transition was finalised by the BBC Trust in November 2015.The Trust cited the shifting viewing habits of BBC Three's target audience from linear TV to digital services, and that the discontinuation of BBC Three as a television channel would allow the BBC to "deliver more distinctive content online, while bearing down on costs".For the former British television channel of the same name that broadcast from 2003 to 2016, see BBC Three. It was launched on 16 February 2016 as a replacement for the linear BBC Three television channel, which was discontinued the same day.The service produces and streams television and web series aimed at the demographic of 16– to 34-year-olds, with a particular focus on comedy and documentary programmes.
