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.
Any idea when this app will catch up with the other TV apps? All 4 used to work fine on my old tablet. Now on a Lenovo Tab 2 and doesn't work. This tablet is NOT in the FAQ list of devices that don't work for All 4. However, I reported this months ago & no change. I asked why all the other TV apps do work and got no reply. Is there anybody actually working on fixing this?! Surely they can hire a freelance developer who has worked on other functional TV apps?
Adverts play but programmes don't work! Ever since an update 6 months or so ago this app doesn't work. I've been waiting for it to be fixed in new updates but nothing's changed... it used to work fine but now all I get is audio and pixels. Even if I download them. Yet the ads seem to work no problem? A lot of people seem to be having this issue - surely it should have been fixed by now! Not wasting my time with All4 anymore.
Was fine yesterday... Catched up on some hollyoaks last night and it worked perfectly fine, just like any time I use all 4 on my pad. So tonight I sit down load up the hollyoaks episodes, press play and.... "network error please try again"... thats all i get for everything on all 4... uninstalled and installed again but same thing again, what is going on.. it was fine yesterday. Any ideas ?? ;)
Doesn't work anymore! This used to be a great app. But since the update, it no longer works! Channel 4: How can you produce an app that plays commercials, but won't actually play any programmes?!! I just don't get it? And how come it worked perfectly before and doesn't work now?(Apart from the ads). Do you not want anyone to watch your programmes?
Only good for adverts. Had this on Lenovo tab and it worked great. Now have Lenovo tab 2 and I've tried several programmes, get adverts fine. Once show starts I get sounds but blank screen! Yet I can view everything just fine on my Huawei P8. Not due to connection problems as both use wifi! Grrr
Hours of adverts Loads of adverts and no way to skip any of them. Got half way through watching a program, got interrupted, and now trying to watch the rest. 15 minutes of adverts later still trying to get back to the right place. .. i understand the ads pay for the tv but PLEASE remember where i am and give me a resume option.
