On the 27th April 2005 it was announded that E4 would be moving to a freeview service. This was done as to increase advertising revenue by attracting larger viewing figures.

But in the year 2008 on May 6th the channel became free to air.

'Until now the channels were viewable via satellite only to those with a Sky subscription, which before hand was the channles main funding from watchers.'

The broadcaster negotiated a change to its conditional access contract with Sky in order to make all three channels to be available to those with Freesat equipment.''

'Sky has informed subscribers that from today E4 and More4 will no longer be a part of its variety pay TV channel package.'

Since the rise in pularity of sites
numerous programmes have gone about being

Case Study-e4/thoughtworks/channel4/Liveontimeonbudget

E4 music Though E4 was branched off from channel 4
for entertainment purposes, its shows are often aimed at teenage viwers 16 to 19 or more adult orientated audiences, prevably 20s to 30s The channle 4 net work and channel have moved and expanded like the BBC. Why look at BBC 3 in comparison to E4, both offer programmes aimed at younger audiences. E4 has teen based situation and innuendo i.e skins and Misfits, while 3 has Coming of age and family guy that contain the same cheeky, rude and sexulaised tones as much as E4s

Not forgetting the adding of 4 on demand which works like BBC i player.

It might aswell be said that 4 station wishes to share in the competition of the BBC audience

Again to compare attraction and
competition, E4 has recently or in
the last few moths been airing a
brand new show from the makers of Family
Guy called the Cleveland show, containing familar characters from family.

As well as being aimed at a teenage audience, the creators likes to seperate itself to adults of mid 2os to mid 30s. This comes primarily through the onscreen content, especially when handling sexual situtation between teens and adults, gay and lesbian. Violence plays another part in adult audience, where it be either gand related or racial related. On example of this is long running hit dramdey Shameless, based a lower class Manchester council estate.

Depicting the lives of drunken parents, tearaway children and sexually aggrerated homosexual teenagers, not forgetting drug related incidents and unmercyfull punch ups.

Another past show of adult orientation that became aired to the channel after its sucess on channel 4, was the dark Californian Drama Six Feet Under. Going through deatiled depiction of a Passadena family who work in the business of the grief management funeral buisness. The show has often attracted controvsary, for it's depcition of death and male and female sexualities again including homosexual

Other adult orientated shows included are

Desperate HouseWifes
The Sopranos

More softer subject mattered programmes that are aime at
teenage audiences are usually shown before the watershed or
on the watershed time limit (9.00 pm) It's early scheduling
Usually in the morning to later afternoon, consist of easy to watch dramas on American based social realisum and softer teen based humour and content i.e.

The O.C.
One Tree Hill

On the watershed time, programmes begin to turn up a notch with with their humour, with similar programmes ans subjects, but with more innuendo and richer dialogue.

90210 for example

This is how the watershed time shift works, the more hours past the it, the more explicit it gets.

With the ending of Big brother in August 2005,
E4 introduced the music slot which ran through most of the morning
and afternoon, later dropped to just airing mornings with the sheer amount of
scriped comedy coming in.

It was used as a time filler, seen as e4 was off air for most of day time,
only to air on reality TV shows i.e. big brother. The introduction of
its music scheduling, led the channel to broadcast 24/7 all day and
year round untill the ratings gradually fell.

'E4 proudly announcing tonight that E4 Music is dead, and pointing people to 4 Music for 24/7
music - even though during the morning they show tele-shopping.'
