Ads and bugs
I only use it on Apple TV. They did not mess with the video player UI, which if you used Now TV you know the pain, on downside the pause button on the remote doesn’t work but clicking the middle of the remote trackpad does so.. But they do not joke around, it’s ads after ads, so many ads, specially American programs which have so many ad breaks, if you just want to scrub through to the end of a show, you need to see the ads. And it has so many bugs, it’s impossible to scrub through a video, the video Ui just fades away, tapping the edges of the remote for quick 10s skip doesn’t work either. You start seeing a show say s01e01, it then sets the next one to a newer season like s03e02 On that note often doesn’t mark an episode as watched, you have to use the Apple TV app to do that instead, thank god for that integration as browsing a tv show in Apple TV app is more efficient Sometimes just image just goes black, you then have to go back in and you know see ads again Often at the end of a show the image gets smaller to show the next episode way before the show actually reached the end, you then have to maximise it again AND hit play But you know it’s free so..
One more thing: the ad breaks are constantly changing, sometimes they are 3 minutes, sometimes just 30s or even 15, so by time you get up to go the toilet it’s already over, I prefer consistency to be able to enjoy my breaks.
Pop-up show suggestions disruptive
I’ve been catching up on The Goldbergs, a show which has action going on whilst the credits roll, right up to the last second. I watch on mobile. The “watch more” pop-ups appear exactly 1 minute before the show ends, every single time. This means that on every occasion I have to try to get rid of it off my screen whilst the show is still in swing. It takes away from the enjoyment and flow of things. Please consider having it pop up once the credits are finished, or suggest just one show at a time and have it small at the bottom or corner of the screen (like most other streaming apps), not covering the entire screen like it currently does.
The second ‘issue’ is that there seems not to be an autoplay option when binge-watching series. So I have to manually play the next episode. Which wouldn’t be so annoying if I hadn’t had to fiddle around getting images of other shows off my screen whilst trying to watch my program.
I am one of the few who don’t mind the ads - your service is free and you can see how long the break will be by checking the bottom of the screen you you can make a cuppa or go to loo!

Hi, we really appreciate the feedback and will get this passed along.
Crash, advert, crash, advert, repeat….
Really frustrating! I’ve used All 4 in the past and linked with chromecast but lately and with the new update I can be casting a one hour episode and find that it crashes within ten minutes and then sends me straight back to the start of the programme after an advert or two. By the time I’ve found where the programme crashed, I have to watch another two adverts and then can continue watching. Within another two minutes it crashes again and says there’s an error and then I’m back to the start of the programme again with another advert before it starts again. I’ve given up now. This doesn’t appear to be able to ‘project to the big screen’ like it states unless you have a spare four hours to watch a one hour episode of a programme. Frustrating. Maybe it’s my wifi, maybe it’s chromecast or maybe it’s the channel 4 app. They are all like enemies working against each other. There’s no telling what or who is at fault. Just a statement on the screen saying I need to recast and then no record of how much of the episode I have watched. Another two reviews to write as I frustratingly turn off my tv and feel I’ve wasted an evening of my life watching the first part of a programme several times. It isn’t just tonight this has happened. I did exactly the same last night and the night before. Should be called All 4 (hours wasted) but I’ve wasted more than that on this app.
