UK pubcaster Channel 4 has launched All 4’s ‘Watch Live’ feature on Android devices giving users the opportunity to watch live broadcasts from all Channel 4’s channels on their own personal device, wherever they are.
This latest feature for Android users arrives just ahead of Channel 4’s first-ever live Formula 1 race, the 2016 Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix taking place this weekend; one of the much anticipated race meetings of the British horseracing calendar, The 2016 Grand National on 9th April; and the 2016 Paralympics in Rio this September.
A completely overhauled All 4 app launched on Android at the end of last year, following a preview trial with the broadcaster’s Core4 viewer panel which invited Android users to help shape the app ahead of its wider release.
Channel 4 has developed the All 4 app in partnership with Novoda, an international development house specialising in mobile software craftsmanship.
Sarah Milton, All 4 Head of Product said: “Following the release of our new and improved app at the end of last year, we’re pleased to be able to offer the Android community this exciting additional feature ensuring that they never miss those important live Channel 4 moments just as they happen.”
The Watch Live feature is enabled on compatible devices running Android OS Version 4.3 and above.
All 4 first launched on PC and iOS at the end of March last year.
