BBC Three Has Major Success Online
Since launching online BBC Three has seen major success with a range of experimental and innovative content created just for 16 to 34 year olds.
Damian Kavanagh, Controller, BBC Three says: “BBC Three moved online 18 months ago and at the time I said the transition would be a marathon not a sprint as we learnt and adapted our behaviour to ensure we reach young audiences wherever they are.
“Looking back I feel an enormous sense of pride about what the BBC Three team and all the creative talent who work with us have achieved. We’ve more than doubled our total brand reach and seen phenomenal growth on social platforms producing original content with true public purpose. We’ve won over critics and audiences alike; winning numerous awards along the way including the prestigious RTS channel of the year award 2017. And we have done what we promised – we have backed the very best emerging talent in the UK, creating some household names along the way.
“The future for BBC Three is looking very bright and I’m convinced that by continuing to innovate and take risks with our storytelling and allowing brilliant talent to do their most creative work we will continue to grow and create content our young audience love.”
