  • Irene Cotsell

    Have been trying to catch up on All 4 for the last 2 days – unable to get past 2nd screen -just continually buffering. All other apps/catch up’s working perfectly. What’s the problem?

  • David Lieb

    channel 4catchup is shite

  • Kelpie

    Shows keep freezing despite good internet connection. Only happening on this site. BBCiPlayer, Netflix etc fine.

  • Rebecca

    Watching channel 4 app on a Samsung smart TV. Every time an advert comes on the content is unable to load so I have to click back then play again. This has to be the worst experience of catch up TV I’ve ever had. BBC and ITV are working fine….

  • Charmaine

    Watching 4oD on smart TV and after the adverts the programme doesn’t load and I get the ALL4-011 Programme unavailable error. Been happening for the last few days. When is there going to be a patch?

  • Carole Willoughby

    I can view adverts ok on my tablet (typical) then the programme I want to watch is all pixelated. What’s going on? I have no problem with other playback channels!

  • ashley

  • Garry Lewis

    I can’t even get passed the load up screen, just get the loading symbol for about 5 minutes then crashes?

  • Marita Kehoe

    I’m the same as previous people …I try to watch born to kill on my humax freesat box and it only allows you to watch until adverts then just scrambles the pic and won’t play anymore …this has been happening now for quite a while ….rubbish !!
    Please fix it

  • John Devereux

    Been in contact with CH4. Asked me to reboot etc despite me telling them I’d done all the obvious. Sent them image of scrambled screen since when I’ve heard nothing from them. Can’t be bothered with them anymore. Apalling service. I can’t believe they don’t know what to do to fix it.

  • Brian Trigg

    Since Ch 4 required me to register I have had the same problem with Ch 4 on demand on my Panasonic TV from my windows 7 internet. Plays ads but will not move on to programme. Instead screen freezes and displays purple and green segments over the frozen title. This applies to all ch4, More 4 and E4 catch ups. BBC, ITV and 5 catchups no problem.

  • Rod Ashby

    Just watched the first part of Born to Kill, up to the adverts fine, then picture totally messed up. After a few minutes plays more adverts then back to blocky screen. Please sort it out…

  • Terry Robinson

    Hi just wondered why I can’t always get the channel 4 news on catch up? I’ve got a smart tv and last few weeks I’ve been able to access but this week no sign of news on catch up? Can you advise please. Thanks

  • E

    Samsung tv won’t load app at all. Samsung tablet will load app and play adverts but not the show???? Any ideas?

  • Sharon Shirley

    Uninsulated the app on my tablet, will play adverts but not the shows l want to watch….any idea when this will be fixed????

  • Benjamin Oliver Wellington Nas

    Nothing works on PS3. Adverts play fine including the separate programme sponsor advert. I’ve emailed C4 a few times, and each time they give conflicting advice. One reply told me to keep installing and eventually I might have ‘good luck’.

    In an email from C4 yesterday they said:

    ‘We can advise that our technical team are working with Sony, who have identified the issue with the application. Unfortunately, we have no specific time frame for when the issue will be fixed.’

  • Leanne Forrington

    I haven’t been able to get onto the app at all (Samsung tv) for over a week now. just looks like it’s loading…..and won’t go any further

  • shirley moore

    I have tried repeatedly to watch Locked Up series 2 episode 1 but it’s not able to load seemingly. It says playing whilst nothing happens. What’s going on please?
