Keep BBC Three on TV

The BBC is looking to shut down BBC Three to focus attentions & funding on Drama, this meaning BBC Three will only be available on the BBC iPlayer service online.
However this petition aims to show the BBC that many people want BBC Three to remain on TV as it excludes those without sufficient access to the internet and does not match the opinions of many people including students like myself.
The government needs to intervene and provide an alternative way to save money as the BBC clearly do not understand the wants of the current generation of TV viewers.
