List of channels from Channel Four Television Corporation
Note: This channel list is for the streaming service and not the channel with the same name.
Channel 4 is a video on demand service from the Channel Four Television Corporation, free of charge for most content and funded by advertising. The service is available in the UK and Ireland; viewers are not required to have a TV licence—required for live viewing and the BBC iPlayer on-demand service—when watching on-demand services. The service launched on 16 November 2006 as 4oD (for "4 on Demand"). The service offers a variety of programmes recently shown on Channel 4, E4, More4, Film4 and E4 Extra and shorts. However some programmes and movies are not available due to rights issues. The service was originally available without registration, but free registration was later required. The service is available without advertising (except for live viewing) on payment of a subscription, under the name All 4+.
The cable and IPTV versions are operated through an appropriate set-top box, the Internet variant can be accessed via their website, and there are apps for mobile devices. All 4 generated around 215 million long-form video views on all platforms where it is available in the first half of 2011, making Channel 4 the biggest commercial UK broadcaster in the video on-demand market during the period.
On 30 March 2015, 4oD was merged into and renamed All 4. On 1 March 2019, All 4 was rebranded with a new logo, website design and app design. In late April 2023, All 4 was rebranded as Channel 4, the same name as the television channel, becoming the "first UK broadcaster to adopt one brand identity across its digital and linear channels".
All live channels on Channel 4 are available in the UK only and show an error in Ireland saying "This programme is not available in your current location".
