Channel 4

Channel 4 was the fourth terrestrial TV channel to launch in the United Kingdom. The channel launched in 1982 and has gained a reputation for representing more minority audiences across the UK. The channel is a public broadcaster and airs a number of original and acquired series. 'Big Brother' originally launched in the UK on the channel, but shifted to Channel 5 when the broadcaster axed the show in 2010. Channel 4 was also the home of first run airings of both 'Friends' and 'Will & Grace'. The channel has also aired a number of other high-profile American sitcoms and reality shows.
