BBC Three is a British free-to-air television channel owned and operated by the BBC, on-air regularly from 19:00 to around 04:00, timesharing with CBBC. It was first launched in 2003 with programmes targeting 16 to 34-year-olds, covering all genres including animation, comedy, current affairs, and drama series. The television channel closed down in 2016 and was replaced by an online-only BBC Three streaming channel. After six years of being online, BBC Three relaunched to linear television on 1 February 2022. BBC Three is the BBC's youth-orientated television channel, its remit to provide "innovative programming" to a target audience of viewers between 16 and 34 years old, leveraging technology as well as new talent. Unlike its commercial rivals, 90% of BBC Three's output originated from the United Kingdom. Notable exceptions were Family Guy and American Dad. It also carries occasional BBC Sport programming as an overflow for the BBC's other channels.
