Surely the reason that BBC3 is going on-line only is because younger people don't watch live TV but they do watch stuff on tablets, phones etc at a time that suits them. It wouldn't surprise me to find that live audiences for some of the BBC3 programmes were vanishingly small but if you include the on-line audience then you get good numbers.
