Channel 4 today announced it has launched All 4’s Watch Live feature on Android devices, giving users the opportunity to watch live broadcasts from all Channel 4’s channels wherever they are, and just in time for the Formula One as well.
At the beginning of this month we reported that older Fire TV boxes and sticks from Amazon began their rollout of OS 5.0.5, and consequently predicted All 4 to follow shortly. We can now confirm that this is official and All 4 is scheduled for this month.
Amazon Fire TV owners waiting for the Fire OS 5 update on older 1st generation devices, will have to remain patient until February. Why is this newsworthy? If you’re checking every morning for the arrival of All 4 and ITV Hub, then sadly you shouldn’t expect it to appear this month.
Although Channel 4 is historically considered the third terrestrial television network in the UK after the BBC and ITV, it would come in many people’s minds a close second after the national public broadcaster. Channel 4, due to its public service remit, constantly delivers a broad range of cultural, artistic and entertaining programmes that often defy its commercial financing.
In what many readers will consider as quite frankly incredible news, Channel 4’s All 4 catch-up service has just found it’s way onto the 2nd generation Amazon Fire TV Box, providing the largest range of UK free-to-air on-demand services on any single platform.
It may be a week dominated somewhat by new sitcoms and comedy shows, but there’s still plenty of fresh dramas and thrillers to found, with our personal favourite being Amazon’s new dystopian thriller; the Man in the High Castle. Check out this week’s Four Corners for the best of new on-demand TV from around the world.
Another great week for television from around the world, with my current favourite comedy Dreamland (Utopia to Australians) landing their second season on Netflix, along with a pile more shows from Supergirl to Ash vs Evil Dead! Check ’em out on this week’s Four Corners…
