Welsh-language kids channel in the works
Channel Four Wales, known as S4C, is investigating the possibility of a Welsh-language kids television channel. Through 10 weeks of planned public consultations, the network will consider adding a channel devoted to children up to age 16.
The station would be funded through S4C's current budget and commercial revenues, if approved by the Welsh Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. The channel has set aside USD$21.5 million for children's programs this year already.
The station would only be available digitally.
