British Sign Language (BSL) makes use of hand movements and facial expressions to represent letters, words or phrases. An interpreter translates dialogue from a show into BSL, helping deaf and hard of hearing people to enjoy shows.
We broadcast signed shows through the BSL Zone on the Community Channel (CH 539). BSL is also provided on selected shows by a number of other broadcasters.
To see if BSL is available
Press Home on your Sky Q remote, select TV Guide and highlight a show. If BSL is available you'll see SL in the programme information.
The signer can't be turned on and off as they're part of the show.
