Channel 4 is committed to providing a range of access services across our channels and programming in line with our yearly quota from Ofcom. For 2017 the quota is:
Subtitling: 90% on Channel 4, 80% on E4 and More4, 75% on Film4 and 53.8% 4Seven.
Audio Decription: 10% on Channel 4, E4, More4, Film4 and 9.5% on 4Seven

In 2016, we exceeded our Ofcom quota across the board providing:
Channel 4: 99.99% subtitles, 31.11% audio description and 6.32% of programmes with signing.
E4: provided 100% subtitles, 54.31% audio description and 6.49% of programming with signing.
Film4: provided 100% subtitles and 26.8% of programming with audio description.
More4: provided 99.98% subtitles and 28.9% of programming with audio description.
4Seven: provided 99.9% subtitles and 32.4% of programming with audio description.
More 4, Film4 and 4Seven all contribute to the Community Channel funding and therefore do not carry signed programmes (with one exception, each Monday morning at 8am on Film4).
