S4C terminates second channel

14/01/2011

Following a consultation period, S4C has decided to terminate the S4C2 channel.

A spokesman on behalf of S4C said:

“In light of recent budget cuts announced by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, S4C has been reviewing how to make the best use of current resources. As a result, a decision has been made to terminate the S4C2 channel.

“S4C are aiming to provide more live daytime coverage from events such as the National Eisteddfod and The Royal Welsh Show on the main service. We are also aiming to make more use of online services during live events.”

Until the beginning of 2010, the channel also provided live coverage from the National Assembly in Cardiff Bay until the broadcasts were moved to the BBC Democracy Live website. Coverage of the day’s events at the Assembly can be seen on S4C late on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights.
