About Channel 4

Channel 4 is a publicly-owned and commercially-funded UK Public Service Broadcaster (PSB), with a statutory remit to deliver high-quality, innovative, alternative content that challenges the status quo.

In a Nutshell

A publisher-broadcaster, we do not have our own in-house production teams; instead, we commission content from producers, mainly SMEs, from all across the Nations and Regions.

We’re a self-sufficient business that reinvests all profits back into programmes, at zero cost to the taxpayer. A ‘Robin Hood’ model of cross-funding means programmes that make money pay for others that are key to delivering our remit, such as News and Current Affairs.

Our twin goals as a content provider and business are to fulfil our remit and to be commercially self-sufficient.
