Channel 4 announces new on-demand service

4World Drama

4World Drama

A new TV service showcasing the very best foreign-language drama series from around the world is to launch free and on-demand to all UK viewers this autumn with the backing of Channel 4.

The new on-demand service, which has the working title 4World Drama, will be exclusively available in the UK via Channel 4’s new digital hub, All 4, which recently replaced 4oD.

The launch will capitalise on the growing demand for premium foreign-language drama from British viewers and the wide range of high quality international drama that has not yet been broadcast in the UK. More than 500 hours of drama will be exclusively available for box-set viewing on All 4, supported by advertising and sponsorship to be sold by Channel 4.
