About Our Channels

What is happening to Channel 4HD and All4 on Freesat?

Regrettably, as of Thursday 22 February, Channel 4HD and All4 will no longer be available on the Freesat platform.

We appreciate that viewers have received only a few days’ notice from Freesat; Channel 4 provided notice to Freesat in line with its contractual commitments. This followed the notification by Freesat of major changes to its charging structure, significantly increasing Channel 4’s costs, which ultimately takes funding away from our investment in British programmes. To reduce the overall burden of these costs and make internal savings, we have withdrawn All 4 and Channel 4HD while we consider our long term relationship with Freesat.

Please note that the availability of Channel 4HD and All 4 on other platforms is unaffected and Channel 4HD remains available on Freeview, YouView, Sky and Virgin Media. Meanwhile All 4 can be accessed via our website, and a number of other devices such as iOS and Android apps, or on Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, YouView, Freeview Play, Roku and Now TV boxes, Chromecast, Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox One and 360, Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10.

In the meantime, our other channels on Freesat remain unaffected and continue to be available (Channel 4 SD, E4, More4, 4Seven, Film 4 and the associated +1 channels)
