BBC Three has broadcast its final night as a television channel as the youth strand goes online only.
Programmes and other content such as animations and short films will now be available via the channel’s website and the BBC iPlayer.
The network has already posted a video from its YouTube account welcoming viewers to the new platforms.
The move to online was first proposed in 2014 and was approved by the BBC Trust in November.
The Trust said there was “clear public value in moving BBC Three online, as independent evidence shows younger audiences are watching more online and watching less linear TV”.
