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.
JUST NEEDS SUBTITLES PLEASE THEN I WILL GIVE FIVE STARS. OVER WISE ALL 4 APP IS GREAT. NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE ALL 4 APP. CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS APP IS ONLY RATED 2.8 STARS. IT HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. AND ALL THE BOX SETS AND ALL THE WALTER PRESENTS WORLD DRAMAS. AND MORE ETC..... Also works great on my Samsung smart tv. ...
Content is never a problem with Channel 4/E4, my biggest issue is the adverts! With all other on demand services I use the adverts don't seem anywhere near as frequent or as long, to the point where I use my Sky Go app to watch C4/E4 content if I can and will only use the all 4 app if the programme isn't available on demand elsewhere. Please remember people like watching on demand to reduce ad times, and I don't want to watch an ad (which I can't skip) every 5 minutes!
It actually functions ok for me but the ads are unavoidable and often stretch for 3 minutes, making the app incredibly frustrating to use. I often give up and watch something on iPlayer instead. Update: now each attempt to play a programme gets a response of "Network error - please try again later". At the same time BBC iPlayer functions correctly. Think I'll give up on All 4 completely.
Programmes made unwatchable by adverts. It can take several minutes just to determine whether you've already seen a programme! Get rid of pre-programme adverts at least. And as if that weren't enough the app simply doesn't work half the time - currently I get all the ads but sound only on the programmes. Pathetic effort by people we might expect to do better.
Adverts work perfectly! But the programme keeps giving me a still picture but carrying on the noise, 10 times I have closed the app and rebooted it for it to do the same thing again and again, tried uninstalling and installing again and even tried different programmes! Useless
The ads are just ridiculous. I know you have to have them but it's like every three minutes with another advert that actually is longer than the tiny bit of programme you got to watch in between. One long one a the start, short one in the middle and long again at the end would be enough! In reply to the reply I received from all 4. Yes I am aware that's how it works for all non BBC channels but the amount of advertisements is the issue, not the fact that they are there all together. I watch programmes and I feel like all I do is watch adverts and I get frustrated and give up and watch them on a service that doesn't have them (like sky Q). Like I said, it's not about the content or the fact that you have to have them. It's the length and frequency that's annoying.
