Treoirlínte Leanúnachas

Is mian le TG4 treoir a thabhairt chun go mbeidh leanúnachas i bhfeidhm ar chláracha coimisiúnaithe TG4.

I gcás tús míre / briseadh fógraíochta / deireadh míre – Is é seo a leanas an t-aon téacs a nglacfaidh TG4 leo as seo amach.

Caithfidh an téacs seo a bheith ar gach chlár.

Deireadh le Cuid a hAon NÓ Deireadh Chuid a hAon


Cuid a Dó

Deireadh le Cuid a Dó NÓ Deireadh Chuid a Dó


Cuid a Trí

Deireadh le Cuid a Trí NÓ Deireadh Chuid a Trí

Ní ghlacfar le haon Hashtags ná le haon leagan eile den mhéid atá thuas mar chomhartha ar an mbriseadh fógraíochta.
