Ratings and Reviews
Worst of the catchup apps by far
This is by far the worst catchup app I've used, the only thing that works without fault are the myriad of ads at the start of each episode. It all starts out well and starts to play almost immediately after selection and plays through the ads faultlessly. However, as soon as the ads finish it mysteriously crashes with a message saying the episode is not available right now. Only thing you can then do is go back and start it again and guess what?? Yep the ads play again perfectly till the end and the program crashes once again. It sometimes does this 10 or 15 minutes into an episode but on restarting it you have to endure the ads again. Also a lot of series have many episodes missing such as kitchen nightmares for an example, probably a third of them are just not there, pretty useless really.
All in all just not worth bothering with at all.
Fairly good but one problem...
I like this app for watching some of my favourite shows, but I have to say the downloading feature is almost pointless. I love that I can download episodes, but the amount of time it takes for just one episode of something to download is ridiculous. I left the app for two hours with a 20 minute episode downloading, and I checked on it later but it still wasn’t done. It wasn’t just a fault with the app because it’s done it a lot, and it’s so annoying. I want to be able to watch things without WiFi because my internet connection is bad, but nothing downloads in time. So I would say the app is 5 stars if that gets sorted. Otherwise, 4 stars and just a slight improvement in download lags.
Great Shows, Awful App
Channel Four has by far the best shows on TV in the UK. This is also the only decent catch up service that gives you access to box sets of shows, old and new.
I.e. every episode of every series. But the app and web app have for years been awful! I have used the web site for years and it is by far the worst catch up service technically! Regardless of what device, browser or version of the app you are using. So frustrating. The Ads play great, the shows themselves struggle with so many technical problems. Don't touch any button if you want to see the end of the show. Just let it play, even if it does crawl it’s way through. Really surprised that Channel Four haven’t ever sorted this out. You have to raise some serious questions about who at the organisation thinks that this is an ok, let alone a good streaming platform.
