UK public broadcaster Channel 4’s on-demand and catch-up service All4, along with the HD version of Channel 4, is to disappear from free-to-view satellite platform Freesat tomorrow after the pair failed to agree new carriage terms.
The standard definition version of the channel along with digital services E4, More 4, 4seven and Film 4 are unaffected by the changes and remain available on the platform.
UK regulations mean that Channel 4 is obliged to broadcast the standard-definition version of its services available across all platforms.
Channel 4 cited a significant rise in fees as the reason for its decision to pull the services from Freesat, which is backed by the BBC and ITV.
Freesat is available in over two million UK homes.
