Reason for the petition to ensure enough finance for S4C

S4C (Sianel Pedwar Cymru) is the only Welsh Language TV Channel in the world. It was set up many years ago, paid for by the UK Government and a little advertising. It is available via Sky and the Internet in the UK. S4C International is available worldwide on line, but does not provide every program.
The UK government is being a bit coy over continued payment for TV Channels. They kicked S4C into the long grass by saying they will have an enquiry in 2017 Then they announced that S4C is safe as all the money which the BBC has agreed to pass on annually from the license fee will continue. However, this is not sufficient. There is a further sum (about £7 million) which the UK Government give the channel. This is only promised to the end of 2017, yet the enquiry into the viability of S4C finance keeps being put off
I started a petition for those of us who live outside Wales to sign, as we are not counted among viewing figures. If you would sign, thank you, diolch yn fawr! If you have already signed, DIOLCH!
