Launched in 1998, Film4 is a companion to Channel 4, and is dedicated almost solely to the broadcast of films. Film4 airs many films produced under its own production company, and has a reputation for the showing of independent, often challenging cinema. It has, in recent years however, adopted a stronger focus on mainstream, Hollywood blockbusters – widening its appeal as a result. Despite this, the channel frequently runs themed programming, with films related to actors, countries, directors and genres helping to retain a varied output.
