BBC Three's move online is provisionally approved by BBC Trust

30 June 2015 4:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The BBC Trust has recommended proposals to close down BBC Three as a broadcast channel and move it online in 2016 - but its decision is not final.

The Trust will carry out another round of consultation in the coming weeks, as it wants to feel confident that BBC Three's "risk-taking" remit and existing audience will still be served across the corporation's other TV channels and services.

BBC Trust: 'We have not ignored young people on BBC Three - they have a valid voice'

"We want a strong, sustainable BBC which is innovative, distinctive and relevant and has clear boundaries with the commercial market. We have reached our provisional conclusions with this over-arching objective in mind," said BBC Trust chairman Rona Fairhead.

"It is clear that the long-term future of broadcasting is online and the BBC needs to find new and exciting ways to help audiences make that transition, while bearing down on costs overall. »

29 June 2015 5:20 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Despite all his years of dealing with spells, spooks, strange creatures and Snape, Daniel Radcliffe might not be ready for the surreality of his next project. He, alongside Paul Dano and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, is all aboard Swiss Army Man.So far, so relatively routine, you might think. But then you read the plot of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's (Deadline reports that they simply go by “the Daniels”) film and the strangeness kicks in. The story follows what happens when a hopeless man struggling through a wilderness meets and befriends a dead body. Together, the pair undertakes a weird journey to get home. Told you it was odd.

Five "Must-See" Movies for July 2015

29 June 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »
