Channel 4 app returns to Freesat

UK broadcaster Channel 4’s app has returned to the Freesat platform after an absence of five years.

Relaunching on Freesat’s 4K TV Box means that customers can once again access the Channel 4 app to stream the channel’s on-demand content.

The move means that Freesat users will have access to an additional 16,000 hours of on-demand content via the Channel 4 app, including shows such as Gogglebox, The Inbetweeners, Married at First Sight, and The Great British Bake Off.

The Channel 4 app rejoins BBC iPlayer, ITVX, My5, UKTV Play, BBC Sounds and others on Freesat, giving customers access to over 60,000 hours of on-demand content in total.

As part of the launch, Freesat is running a competition with prizes themed around some of Channel 4’s biggest shows.

Emily Doyle, content partnership manager at Freesat, said, “We are constantly striving to bring our customers the very best content and being able to relaunch the Channel 4 app is a significant milestone in that mission. This marks the final piece in the puzzle of re-introducing the full Channel 4 offering to Freesat, after relaunching Channel 4 HD and its suite of music channels over the last two years.”

Karla Berry, distribution and platform partnerships leader, Channel 4 said: “Ensuring Channel 4 content is available to audiences where they want it, when they want it is absolutely crucial, so we’re delighted to see the Channel 4 app on Freesat’s 4K TV Box. Viewers will be able to enjoy thousands of hours of brilliant content including The Great British Bake Off, Married At First Sight and a wealth of documentaries, dramas and fantastic movies.”
