I hope the channel does not be exclusive at one operator. :(

Yay! It's a Brazilian channel. :D It's exclusive for Sky over here but ZooMoo seems to be very bad.
Oh dear the channel doesn't sound good then :/ The DirecTV launch is mostly for Spanish speaking Latin America.

They have Record TV (International) on Sky UK.

The foreign channels we get in the UK are mostly South Asian, such as Star Plus, Sony Entertainment Asia, Zee TV etc.

There's CCTV News, NHK World, Al Jazeera, NDTV and eNCA etc in terms of news channels on Sky.

Virgin doesn't carry as many channels as Sky, but luckily some of these are FTA.

[MENTION=56671]RegularCapital[/MENTION]: Our TV providers are very receptive to foreign channels (RTR Planeta, CCTV 4, KBS World and others) so we don't get loads of South Asian channels.
We only get these channels because of the large Indian and South Asian community in the UK, there's also a large Polish community but they can receive nc+ or Polsat with ease, hence the absence of these channels on Sky.

[MENTION=56671]RegularCapital[/MENTION]: My country has a fair amount of Chinese immigrants working here. Since last week they have the most Chinese channels around:
-Phoenix Chinese News and Entertainment (Chinese)
-Phoenix Infonews (Chinese)
-CCTV News (English)
-CCTV 4 (Chinese with most shows subtitled into English)
Just to give you an idea of how it looks liek over here.

On the topic of S4C, here is the video of when their Analogue service closed down on 31st March 2010, they ended their service respectfully with a montage. The Analogue version of S4C aired Channel 4 shows, as Channel 4 wasn't available on analogue terrestrial. When Digital TV launched, Channel 4 became available in Wales and S4C Digidol only aired shows in Welsh.

No montages or anything, it was quick and unexpected.
Most channels just pulled the plug but just displayed a message before the transmissions were switched off, the BBC was more informative than ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
If there is one other thing I have to give the BBC and the other terrestrial networks credit for, is that they apologise when there are technical problems.

That is apart from the stickers that appeared on screen before the switch-off:

There were six bugs, "3 SEMANAS" was yellow, "2 SEMANAS" was orange, "1 SEMANA", "AMANHÃ" and "HOJE" were red.

At least they given people an advanced warning, in the UK the ASO was done by ITV region, my local Switchover happened in September 2011.

The ASO over here started with the central and southern coast in January, then the rest of the country switched off until April, which included the Minho region, where I live.
