UK broadcaster Channel 4 will launch a family of websites later this year that are based on content from its TV channel.
Stevan Keane, head of interactive commissioning for Channel 4, said: "We want to achieve on the net and in digital media what we have with our TV channel."
As a result, he claimed that the websites would be very "out there". For example, Channel 4 is planning to host an uncensored area and a gay site based around its popular programme, Queer as Folk.
Other channels will include games, horse racing, music, style, comedy, a film and games database and a teenage site. A comedy site, codenamed dot.comedy is also in the pipeline. This will be based on funny emails that people send each other related to traditional TV programming and the internet.p>"Personalisation will be very important", Keane added as he confirmed that Channel 4 was also looking at ways of delivering content over wireless application protocol based devices.
