On Monday 4th April 2022, the UK Government announced its intention to proceed with the proposed privatisation of Channel 4.
We want to reassure our network of investors, companies and other start-up ecosystem stakeholders that our commitment to investing in high growth, consumer businesses has not changed. Channel 4’s plan is to continue on a ‘business as usual’ basis whilst engaging constructively with the government on the privatisation process, which means that Channel 4’s distinctive content will continue to air and TV campaigns will continue to run successfully.
As always, we would love to speak with any high growth companies that are seeking £1m+ in TV advertising around how we can support with scaling their business in the UK.
