C4 was available on both digital terrestrial and satellite platforms and played music around the clock and had some speciality music shows such as HomeGrown (New Zealand music show), Video Hits and Biggest Records Right Now. The channel was originally launched in 2003 as a re-branding of TV4 which had been broadcasting since 1997. On 1 May 2010, as C4 had been moving away from music programming since 2008, the jukebox side was split off and was re-launched as C4 2, C4 2 was only available on both digital Freeview terrestrial and satellite platforms. At the end of 2010 an announcement was made that MediaWorks would again re-brand the current C4 channel as FOUR, which meant C4 2 would become just C4. C4 shut down on 26 June 2014 at 1am.HistoryC4 was launched on 3 October 2003, when TV4 ceased broadcasting and relaunched as a music channel called C4.
