CBBC and BBC Four channels to move online as BBC builds towards ‘digital-first’

OHMYGOSSIP — CBBC and BBC Four are to move online.
The BBC’s Director General Tim Davie admitted some of the corporation’s “smaller channels”, including Radio 4 Extra, will be stop broadcasting, but admitted this will not happen “for at least the next three years”.
In a speech to BBC staff on Thursday (26.05.22), he said: “Over time we expect to consolidate and share more content between services, and expect to stop broadcasting some of our smaller channels on linear.
“This will include services like BBC Four, CBBC and Radio 4 Extra.
“But we won’t do this for at least the next three years because for the moment they are still delivering value to millions of viewers and listeners, at low extra cost.”
The BBC are moving towards building a “digital-first” corporation.
Tim concluded his speech by saying: “This is our moment to build a digital-first BBC.
“Something genuinely new, a Reithian organisation for the digital age, a positive force for the UK and the world. Independent, impartial, constantly innovating and serving all.
“A fresh, new, global digital media organisation which has never been seen before. Solely driven by the desire to make life and society better for our licence fee payers and customers in every corner of the UK and beyond.
“They want us to keep the BBC relevant and fight for something that in 2022 is more important than ever. To do that we need to evolve faster and embrace the huge shifts in the market around us.
“I believe in a public service BBC for all, properly funded, relevant for everyone, universally available, and growing in the on-demand age. This plan sets us on that journey.”
Free-to-air channel CBBC – which is short for Children’s BBC – has entertained numerous kids since its inception in 1985.
Some of its most popular shows have included ‘Blue Peter’ – which was previously presented by the likes of Helen Skelton, Matt Baker, and Konnie Huq – ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’, and ‘Newsround’.
A tweet on the official CBBC Twitter page read: “CBBC isn’t closing. For at least 3 years it will remain as a linear channel. As our audience move more towards digital we will transition CBBC to iPlayer.”
