What's New in Version 6.7
Bug fixes and improvements.
You'll use it but you'll hate it
The. Worst. App. Ever. So many problems and bugs: plays audio but not picture, plays picture but not audio, drops out or crashes at the adverts, gets stuck on the adverts, buffers for ages despite excellent net connection and on and on and on....
The only decent bug is the one that just fails to play the ad breaks, so that on the rare occasions it does play a show smoothly, you can do so without having to look at some toothpaste and a car every ten minutes.
Compared to other channel's players this is a joke. You'll download it cos at some point you'll want to catch up on a show, but trust me it will have you punching the nearest wall within seconds of using it. Shame, because there's a great library of shows from across the history of the channel to view, if you can get them to play without interruption.
Surely you can do better Channel 4?
Channel 4 has some excellent programming - I love their approach to many things. But year on year their streaming services are poor. You have the content and licences: why can't you deliver it to your users reliably? Tonight the app stopped playing after the first advert, repeatedly. AirPlaying streaming content is unreliable (but not so for other similar services). The app suffers from UX issues: management of downloads isn't that intuitive; similar coloured x and + aren't that clear for toggling of favourites etc. Please persist with real-world testing and reliability improvements until you're receiving 4/5 star reviews, then you'll have an app worthy of association with Channel 4.
The app is very easy to use, find programmes and there is a good amount of programmes to watch. The downside is the advertising. I understand you need to make revenue from this, but there is far too much for a mobile phone app.
My suggestion would be that you reduce advertising in videos, and allow an option to pay to remove ads, because that is something which I would do if the price was reasonable so I can just crack on with watching the videos in peace.
Thank you for reading my review, hopefully this feedback will be taken on board and thought about.
