The EPG numbers for BBC Three on the UK's major TV providers are confirmed.

The EPG numbers for BBC Three on the UK's major TV providers have been revealed ahead of the channel's relaunch next week.

After six years as an online-only service, BBC Three returns as a linear TV channel at 7pm on Tuesday, February 1.

On Freeview and BT TV, the channel will take up EPG position 23 in SD and 109 in HD this Wednesday - and as a result, most other channels will move down one place in the guide to make room.

On Virgin Media, BBC Three will launch onto channel 107, pushing BBC Four down to 108. BBC One in HD is currently available on channel 108 but this will now become the standard on slot 101 with the launch of the BBC One regions in HD.

On Sky, meanwhile, BBC Three will be available on channel 117 for viewers in most of England, all of Wales and all of Northern Ireland. In London, the London Live channel broadcasts on 117 so BBC Three will instead launch on to channel 173. In Scotland the EPG number will be 141.

The recently-launched Sky Glass will feature BBC Three on 118 in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland - and on 119 in Wales.
