BBC 3 Moves Online

Just started seeing "BBC Three Has Moved Online" in the EPG.

Has there been any discussion of who will get the freed up channels?

I imagine "digital bandwidth on multiplexes previously occupied by BBC THREE and BBC THREE HD". I wonder if the OED are interested? :D

Thanks prpr for tunefix. (Unashamed plug!)
Yeah, I've started using that in place of channeldel although I seem to have some adult channels on my box for some reason at the moment - must look into it why they aren't being deleted!
I suspect that a BBC1+1 or BBC2+1 will occupy the mux channels vacated by BBC3. A couple of months or so ago there was some mention in the press of BBC seeing a need to do +1 channels.
How about dumping 99% of weather "forecasts" - putting all sport on the sports channels and just sticking to news on news broadcasts?
Personally I'd like to see at least one HD movie channel.

I was wondering what they would do with the EPG for BBC3 and BBC3HD and the answer is divide it into 30 Min. chunks that all display the same message :-

What happens to the bandwidth?, well 2 hours per day will be used to extend CBBC and CBBC-HD from 7pm to 9pm and the rest? as yet undecided
