The new broadband simulcast will be available to PC users from 27th June via the channel4.com website. To access the content users will need to register at www.channel4.com/livetv.
Users will be able to access a streamed live version of the Channel 4 schedule, allowing them to watch Channel 4's flagship commissioned shows at the same time as their TV transmission.
The service will not include acquired programmes and films and will carry the same commercials as the Channel 4 TV service. Where Channel 4 programming is not available a loop of Channel 4 promotions will be broadcast.
