Sky has produced 100 episodes of content with deaf production charity, the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust.
It’s the first time the Trust has worked with a broadcaster to produce an on-demand collection, which has been made by the Deaf community for the Deaf community. Content including comedy, drama and factual will be included as part of the Entertainment package.
Now in its 10th year, the BSLBT was set up as a mechanism for Ofcom to regulate broadcasters to provide access provision. Sky says it wanted to go further to support the BLSBT and have partnered to bring our customers this collection on a pro-bono basis. The collection is available in a dedicated BSL Zone on Sky Q and Sky+. It’s not yet available on Now TV or Sky.
