Kanal 4 (Channel 4) is a Danish subscription television channel operated by SBS Discovery Media, a subsidiary of Discovery Communications. It was launched in 2006 as the successor of the former TvDanmark. Its predecessor TvDanmark was launched in 1997 as Denmark's second nationwide commercial terrestrial channel after TV 2. It was renamed TvDanmark 2 when the sister channel TvDanmark 1 was launched. When TvDanmark 1 was renamed Kanal 5, the first channel reverted to its old name before becoming Kanal 4 in 2006. On 1 January 2007, the terrestrial Kanal 4 signals were replaced by a new channel called SBS NET, while Kanal 4 continued broadcasting by satellite and cable.
The station is broadcast to Denmark by satellite from London, showing mainly films, US and drama shows, therefore allowing for more lenient advertising rules as compared to broadcasting directly from Denmark.
