Review from Rob Lupine
Needs work, but ok I know they need the adverts to fund the app, but 3 adverts before you get to the show you want to watch is a little excessive. I was also annoyed to find when I paused the app to talk to someone it took me back to the start when I resumed. I could forward the programme on the search bar but not the adverts. Change it to just one advert at the beginning & one in the break & it'd be worth 4 stars, get rid of the adverts & it'd be 5.
I love this app Don't know why people are bitching try buying a phone over a £10.. works perfectly fine don't mind the adds that pay's for new programming not like the BBC that get TV licence money that's why they have no adds. tested on two phones s4 i9505 + s4 active i9295.... 5 stars
Joker's at c4 need to sort this crap out Even downloaded shows now freeze at first ad break. Too many ads and an impractical UI that wants you to watch the primetime drivel. You really have to search for the good shows like 8 out of 10 cats etc. Torrent or kodi instead.
Channel 4 say it's due to Lenovo update, really?! The Lenovo website tells me my device last received an update in 2015!! So an update to my device almost 2 years ago caused the app to go wrong in late 2016? Casting = choppy sound that comes and goes. The only way programme plays properly is when downloaded and played only on device used for download. Funnily the problem with sound NEVER occurs during advertisements, only programming
Absolute pile of junk As with other reviewers, the adverts work fine - nice to know Channel 4 is making advertising money out of this PoS. Once the actual content starts, the screen goes black and it's sound only, whether show is being streamed or has been downloaded. Really glad I sat through loads of ads (twice) for sod all content!
Still nonsense. Downloaded and attempted to use this app over a few versions now. Great if you just want to give C4 your details but not much else. I mean asking for address information and creating passwords just to be taunted with what you could watch (or download) if the app actually did what it's meant to do. A waste of time.
Ads work but shows dont Installed on my gbox, picked a few tv shows and all the ads come up (pictures and sound) which you can't skip, just to sit there looking at a black screen afterwards. you can hear it but can't see it. What a load of #####
