In CCG's Annual Report for 1996-1997 the Chairman, Mr Matthew MacIver, anticipated developments in the new millennium : "Under the terms of the Broadcasting Act 1996, viewers will be able to see daily, in peak-time, at least half an hour of Gaelic programmes on one of the digital channels. That might not be enough to satisfy the Gaelic viewers. Neither is it certain that digital terrestrial services will be available in all Gaelic-speaking communities. These issues will have to be addressed".
