A new web-based television service, or IPTV, for British Sign Language (BSL) users has recently launched in the UK.
VeeSee TV airs News
and other programmes in BSL and is available 24 hours a day.
The channel can be viewed on a computer or via a set-top box and is the brainchild of BSL interpreter Susie Grant.
She said she launched VeeSee TV in frustration at mainstream TV's inability to cater for deaf viewers.
VeeSee is the first dedicated channel for BSL users which also includes an interactive forum and user-generated content.
