TG4 (pronounced "tee-jee-cah-hur", ceathair is the Irish for four) is one of Ireland's two state broadcasters. It was established on Halloween 1996 under the name Teilifís na Gaeilge (aka T na G) to provide programming to Irish-speakers. They have also dubbed several shows and movies into Irish. The channel was rebranded as TG4 in 1999 following the launch of TV3 the previous year to keep the channel easy to find on TVs. Though it is aimed at an Irish-speaking audience, TG4 shows undubbed English-language US shows late at night.

TG4 is also broadcast to Northern Ireland.
