Review from Spencer Jarvis
A Disappointment. Been waiting ages for this, since Adobe removed Flash (thanks...) but this is a real disappointment. First of all you can only view using wifi which is a total joke, if iplayer and Sky Go can do it why not Channel 4? But the most annoying thing is that during playback the app just decides to go back to the menu and stop playing! Ok, not a problem I'll just resume... NO, the program restarts from the beginning and you have to watch the adverts again, can't even skip them, need to sort this app, it sucks.
Adds work programme don't ! Updated 18/9/16 still not working and no answer why no HDMI yet Chromecast is allowed. Updated 22/2/16 still not working and no answer why no HDMI yet Chromecast is allowed. Updated11/2/16 why I cannot connect via HDMI yet chromcast is allowed ? Updated10/2/16 yet again still not working and still no response from the developers. It's a shame . Updated 6/1/16 but still not working. Using medion lenovo tablet with Intel CPU and GPU ,adverts play fine but on programming I get sound and vertical coloured lines. If I'm allowed to Chromecast then why am I not allowed to connect to my TV via HDMI ? That's crazy ! Please sort out.
Compatibility issues Sorry the device you're using does not support playing or downloading. In other words we don't support your phone model. Why is this the case? Who knows, incompetent coders or maybe the organisation is just too lazy to bother. How about being honest instead of making out like it's my phone's fault.
totally uselss! I keep getting "All 4 is not responding" or "All 4 has stopped" messages on both the android and windows apps. Please bring back 4OD - it worked great! Or at least give the Formula 1 highlights rights back to the BBC so that I can watch the races on the always reliable BBC i player........
Limited functionality on Nexus 6P -> Update: fixed I love Channel 4 and All 4, and I happen to have a Nexus 6P from their sponsor, O2. So it's really frustrating to have only limited functionality on Google's latest device, which means only watching clips & casting to other devices, but no full-length programs. I am hoping for this to be fixed sooner rather than later, hence the (generous) 3 stars. -> Updated to 5 starts on 14 September 2016 as it was fixed a few months ago. Thank you!
Sort it out...only playing first part of program then stops after 1st set of adverts .....come on channel 4...you are letting yourself down. ...I have never seen so many bad reviews for a app....sort it ..and get good reviews again like all the other TV apps get
Good, but.... Good, but a whole minute or more of extra adverts at the start of the live stream is unhelpful, rather negating the purpose if needing to watch urgently. It's not as if there won't be broadcast adverts every few minutes anyway, so dropping the start ones especially from the live stream won't reduce ad viewing, in fact probably increase it since you won't turn people away at the outset.
