  • The Commercial Growth Fund

    The Commercial Growth Fund

    The S4C Commercial Growth Fund is a new investment fund that is being established within S4C's Digital Media Arm. The Fund will invest in businesses that are closely aligned with S4C's long term strategic aims and that can demonstrate the opportunity and potential for growth. The fund will act as a catalyst for that growth and play a prominent role in harnessing the significant potential of the creative industries in Wales.

  • The Commercial Content Fund

    The Commercial Content Fund

    It is an exciting time to be working in the creative sector in Wales. Great local stories, well told, are transcending geography and language to be enjoyed by global audiences.

    From Irish language hit The Quiet Girl to S4C's own Dal Y Mellt on Netflix, the way has been paved for non-English originated content.

    The Commercial Content Fund has been created by S4C International to fully realise new commercial opportunities for great S4C content and producers – internationally and on different platforms.

    Whatever creative field you are in we'd like to hear from you to see if we can help to take your idea to market.

  • Important Information - Changes and updates to S4C's online contents delivery system (PAC)

    Within the next few weeks, we hope to roll out updates to the S4C PAC online system - pac.s4c.cymru

    These will include several enhancements to the user's experience and improvements to functionality - all based on recent feedback from users.

    We have also improved the way information is stored and saved to our servers to improve speeds and security.

    Due to these necessary improvements, we strongly recommend that you change your user password for PAC to include up to 6 characters, (at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, one digit and one special symbol which cannot be a single or double-quote) - and please ensure a correct contact email is available for you on your profile immediately, this will avoid you being locked out as we start the migration to the latest version.

    Companies who have freelance users for PAC will also need to change these passwords.

    Further details and launch date to follow.

    Any queries please contact: mb@s4c.cymru

  • S4C’s EPG number on Virgin Media changing

    S4C's EPG number on Virgin Media outside Wales will be changing from 166 to 164 on 4 July 2023. S4C will remain on 104 in Wales.

    We would ask any producers who promote S4C's channel numbers in their programmes, for example sports programmes, to reflect the new number from 4 July onwards.

    Many thanks for your co-operation.

  • S4C signs up to the Coalition for Change

    S4C has joined other broadcasters and organisations in the TV industry to support the Coalition for Change and the Freelance Charter, which commits to improving working conditions for freelancers. TAC has already signed up to the Charter and we look forward to working with TAC and our producers to deliver these commitments.

    The full statement and the Freelance Charter can be read here.

  • S4C Casting Guidelines

    We have recently been reviewing the S4C Casting Guidelines in discussion with Equity. The guidelines were introduced in order to avoid having actors appearing in prominent roles in more than one drama series being broadcast at the same time. We have come to the conclusion that we no longer need these guidelines, in view of audience habits, our multi-platform strategy (including box sets), the on-demand window of 150 days and the changes in filming patterns for our soaps. We will remove the Casting Guidelines from the S4C Production site, but producers will still need to discuss and agree the main cast members for any drama with the S4C Commissioner.
