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.
Can't play on hdmi Why? If I can watch c4 legally I have a license and I can watch on a big screen. Utterly daft. Only recently have a hdmi cable so only recently noticed. Very disappointing. Do they want me to get an aerial rather than use all the data I have?
Disaster It's fine if you like adverts... All other content is in candy stripes... If u download it or stream it. This is on a modern lenovo tab 8 ... So it's not old tech.... And this was also identified by someone in Feb..... And by others with different hardware.. You seem to blame items outside of app on 5.0 and 5. 1.. These manufacturers can't all be wrong.. Bbc and itv hubs work fine..... Weird...
Rubbish! Streams the first ad OK then then streams the program for a few seconds before freezing! UPDATE Reinstalled it. Still the same. Bear Gryls island USA and find it, fix it, flog it ads run OK then programs freeze at 9 secs. Humans episode 1 and 2 ads run OK programs don't run at all with error message after a few secs. Galaxy Note 4 running Marshmallow.
Incompatible with most androids devices! Hasn't worked on any of my android devices apart from Samsung and has been so for many years now. Channel 4 receives just under 1BN pounds a year in advertising revenue but can not be bothered to employ somebody with some skill that could reach out to users other than samsung and apple? So much for the multi device universal platform. Is anyone at Ch4 even reading these user reviews?
Awful playback Have downloaded and tried watching three programs. Each one had same results, poor quality video and the audio would constantly drop out of sync with the video. Adverts however would playback fine. A negative rating would be more appropriate. Having tried both streaming and downloading I am getting the same results. Very disappointed as this down not happen with other on demand apps.
Rubbish Since the update..still rubbish. Got a Google device that casts all other catch-up TV to my Sony tv but to do it with this app I have to buy £30 dongle. Don't think so. For months Channel 4/hid behind a "rights issue" defence when actually you were filming a series of promo adds for the Chromecast dongle. Not really what Channel 4 are supposed to be about is it?
