Dafydd Rhys, S4C Director of Content said:

"We're proud to be able to provide this service which will give people across the world a taste of the Royal Welsh Show.

"The competitions that take place in the main ring and the shearing competitions in the Shearing Centre are amongst the most prestigious within the farming world, and we're delighted that we can give them a world-wide platform. The live streams are a great vehicle which enables us to take Wales out into the world."

Aled Jones, Royal Welsh Agricultural Society’s Assistant Chief Executive said “We are delighted that we are now able to offer viewers the opportunity to watch coverage from the show live online.

“We appreciate that travelling to the show is not always possible for everyone, especially those living overseas, and are excited about the possibility of our show being available to those wanting to experience the show in real time. This is going to be especially significant for the shearing enthusiasts from the southern hemisphere.”
