TVPlayer has managed to reach a million users since its official launch at the beginning of the year.

The addition of S4C brings the number of TV channels on the TVPlayer platform to thirty-five. S4C is available from today in the Entertainment Pack together with channels from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. S4C is one of a series of new channels joining TVPlayer this summer.

The channel has gained recognition for highly acclaimed dramas, including the talked about detective series Y Gwyll / Hinterland - broadcast first on S4C in autumn 2013 and is currently being shown on BBC Four.

  1. Well it's already nationwide on Sky and the S4C website, so not really expanding to a wider audience.

  2. True, but for users of TVPlayer who might not have specifically searched out the S4C website, it's handy and being made available to a wider audience by virtue of being offered up in more places.

    S4C's on-demand content is additionally available on YouView, so the channel's programmes are really starting to be seen in more places outside of Wales.

  3. I think S4C should be on BBC iPlayer.
