• Channel 4 is a British free-to-air public broadcast television channel owned and operated by the state-owned Channel Four Television Corporation. It is available on all digital platforms (terrestrial, satellite and cable) as well as through traditional analogue transmission.

    Channel 4 transmits across the whole of the UK, except some parts of Wales, which are covered by the Welsh language S4C.

    Channel 4 also operates a number of other services, including the free-to-air digital TV channels E4, More4 and Film4, and an ever-growing range of online activities at channel4.com, including the broadband service FourDocs and Channel 4’s bespoke video-on-demand service 4oD.

    The Film4 production division produces and co-produces feature films for the UK and global markets. As a publisher-broadcaster, Channel 4 does not produce its own programmes but commissions them from more than 300 independent production companies across the UK, a far greater number than any other broadcaster. It works very closely with the independent production sector, and invests heavily in training and talent development throughout the industry.

    It is publicly owned but, unlike the BBC, it receives no public funding
