About Channel 4
Until 1982, there were only three channels available to watch in the UK- BBC1, BBC2 and ITV. The British Broadcasting Act of 1980 started the process of adding a fourth channel and Channel 4 was broadcast in November 1982. A Welsh counterpart, Channel Four Wales was created to air programmes in Welsh, something that hadn’t really been catered for before.
Channel Four has been considered as a programming pioneer. The channel gave US sitcoms such as Friends and ER peak-time viewing slots, which hadn’t been done before, and developed the reality TV format with the introduction of Big Brother in the early noughties. The channel also secured the rights to broadcast large sporting events like horse racing and cricket.
The channel is due to celebrate its 33rd birthday in November. Today, Channel 4 has many ‘sister’ channels such as 4Seven, Film4, E4, More4 and 4Music. The broadcaster is now owned by the Channel Four Television Corporation. The Welsh version of the channel was digitized in 2010, meaning that Channel 4 is now a UK-wide TV station as of then.
Channel 4 is responsible for many popular programmes such as First Dates, Gogglebox, Come Dine With Me and Skins. The broadcaster also shows popular shows from the USA such as The Big Bang Theory and The Simpsons.
