The channel is mainly focused on sport, humor, science, music, documentary and fiction. It was launched on 28 January 2013, replacing DR HD.[1] DR3 programming is directed towards the young and young adult audience, between 15 and 39 years old. The channel airs at least one film each evening, not rarely American comedy, thriller-comedy and action. Series like Vikings, The Knick, Ripper Street and Black Sails has been aired on DR3, and so have X-game sports and even computer games like championships in Counterstrike.
