But where S4C comes into it's own is with it's sports coverage, because this is where the English soundtrack comes into play, no pun intended! S4C's sports coverage consists mainly of live rugby, but also has football, rally, trotting e.t.c. and all you have to do to get the English soundtrack/commentary is either press the red button or to change your receivers audio language to Welsh, yes Welsh, then you have the English commentary, I know it's a little bit Irish for want of a better word, ‚ but that is how it works.
So no more saying to yourselves that's Welsh, I'm not watching that,, S4C is always one to check out.
S4C broadcasts via the Astra 2 satellite at 28 degrees east‚
