BBC Three has completed its online switch.
The reinvented provider has made TV shows available for download and streaming through it’s new home, The Best Of, and on BBC iPlayer as it begins to publish daily content through its new platform, the Daily Drop.
Damian Kavanagh, BBC Three controller, said, “I want BBC Three to be what people told us they wanted and what we do better than anyone else; original British comedy, provocative documentaries, edgy current affairs and contemporary British drama that makes people think and laugh.”
“The Daily Drop is for when you have a few moments and want to know what’s going on, want to be entertained and to discover more. We want people to get into the habit of coming back every day.”
“The Best Of is for when you have more time and brings our programmes and new content together for a richer experience. It’s liberating for the filmmakers we’re working with to be given the creative freedom to use different formats to tell the story best.
“We aren’t constrained by duration or form anymore so the shackles are off when it comes to creativity.”
BBC Three will allow most of its short form content to be embedded by third parties on their websites.
The Daily Drop will offer original content produced by the BBC Three team, as well as content from its partners, such as BBC Sport, BBC Trending, Radio 1 and Newsbeat.
Kavanagh added, “This is just the start for BBC Three and us reinventing the BBC’s offer for young people.
“I’m incredibly lucky to have the best job around right now because I’m not limited by platform, schedule or content form and we’re building an amazing team here all will amazing skills.
“These are exciting, pioneering times.”
