When will CBBC and BBC Four come off air?

CBBC and BBC Four TV channels will be closing, confirmed by Director General, Tim Davie.

The shakeup comes despite the corporation recently bringing BBC3 back as a linear channel.

When will CBBC come off air?

Director General Tim Davie made the announcement on May 26, 2022, that the BBC and CBBC will come off air.

However, he has stressed that the changes won't come in for at least another three years.

So fans of CBBC still have plenty of time to enjoy the channel on TV.

Children's favourite shows such as Blue Peter and Newsround will continue as digital-first brands for the first time.

When will BBC Four come off air?

Just like mentioned above, BBC Four is unlikely to come off air within the next three years.

The channel launched in 2002 and is home to BBC Proms, BBC Young Dancer and BBC Young Musician.

The BBC has not confirmed whether BBC Four would move online to the iPlayer service.

Why are the channels being axed?

BBC chief Tim Davie announced the move as more viewers switch to streaming services to watch their programmes.

He also revealed around 1,000 jobs will be cut over the next few years.

This is part of a £500 million budget cut plan for the taxpayer-funded corporation.
