BBC Three is being shoehorned back on to TV platforms. As it can’t return to its pre-2016 channel numbers, the channel’s availability will vary across the UK.

After six years, BBC Three is back on traditional TV platforms on 1st February. The first week brings live African Cup of Nations football, a RuPaul Special and a chance to watch numerous BBC Three shows from the last six years from the beginning.

Following the first test transmissions, the BBC confirms BBC Three will relaunch on the 1st February 2022. Live football will feature on three of the first seven nights on air.

The relaunched BBC channel will be available on Freeview, Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media. Platform operators will be required to give the new channel a prominent slot.
