Channel 4 Head of Distribution Carl Pfeiffer commented: “The launch of our website and brochure is an exciting time. As well as facilitating our existing relationships with broadcasters, I believe this can help us work with more producers across the sector who are looking to grow revenue. Channel 4 Distribution is a significant part of our commercial activity and it’s great to be able to shout even louder about it. ”
