SHAME ON YOU CHANNEL FOUR
I’ve been using this app successfully for years, and it was a great way for me to catch up on F1, however suddenly it has stopped working. I’m using the same hardware and the same software, both on my iPad mini and Smart TV, but both refuse to work.
I’ve looked online for various solutions but non have worked, only to discover that suddenly, on further investigation, trying the Channel Four website, that it requests the use of Flash in order to work(???). Now the only way to watch content is to DOWNLOAD the episode/programme and play it on your device.
Why is this happening? Clearly C4 has no respect for its customers and have irresponsibility reprogrammed the app AND the website without proper testing. Or has used someone who clearly doesn’t know what they’re doing.
C4 has the ability to respond to the complaints ON THIS PLATFORM, but have chosen not to. The number of complaints, all saying the same thing, should not be ignored but should be addressed.
And to the complainant who gets 75 mbps, I’m on 200 mbps and usually get 130 mbps but still the problem persists. It is clear that the problem and possibly solution rests solely with Channel Four.
Shame on you Channel Four! Shame on you!
If I could rate LESS than one star I would.
This is a shambles, especially when compared to the myriad of other excellent catch up players out there. When it works it is pretty good but most of the time it is so unstable you don’t really know what is going to happen. Downloads are particularly troublesome sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t often they download but won’t play. If you watch something with the device connected to a tv then playback is extremely erratic, the advert breaks usually cause the app to hang when reloading the programme. This is so full of bugs it smacks of beta software. Come on channel 4 you can do so much better than this!
I have used this for a while and never encountered any problems. I use it for iPhone and also streaming to Apple TV. Great selection of shows and great for catching up . Also for watching live tv always works.
