Scotland's new Gaelic TV channel from the new Gaelic Digital Service, funded by The Scottish Government and BBC Scotland, will launch on freesat in September 2008.

The new Gaelic Digital Service, which will combine television, radio and on-line programme content, is anticipated to have a positive impact at many levels including increasing artistic and technical skills, extending economic opportunities, simulating parents' interest in Gaelic education, appealing to and serving the adult learners and strengthening Gaelic usage in extremely important media. It holds significant potential to assist with the development of positive attitudes to the acquisition and transmission of Gaelic.

The channel will be funded by the Gaelic Media Service, which is financed by the Scottish Government, and BBC Scotland.
