About All 4

When I go to All 4 to watch a programme it tells me I have to register, why?

To watch full-length [long form] programmes on Channel 4's free-to-view All 4 service, all viewers will be required to register their details. Registration is free and gives access to all Channel 4's latest shows and also unlocks access to an extensive archive of classic programmes (including The Inbetweeners, Peep Show, Shameless, Father Ted, Fresh Meat) and many more downloads to watch offline, programme premieres before they go out on TV and many more money can't buy rewards such as VIP tickets to Film 4’s Somerset House Summer Screening – all for free!

All 4 is designed to help us deliver our viewers more programmes we know they like and want to watch – and eventually personalise their experience of All 4 so it’s unique to them – but we need viewer details to do this.

Our Privacy and Cookies policies provide all the information you need to understand how, where and why we use your data. But you are in control and can update your preferences at any time. To do this, sign in to your account at www.channel4.com – select My 4 – Account Settings. It’s up to you whether you want to receive emails from us, but even if you haven’t opted in to receive emails from us, we may still need to send you service emails, which will contain important information about our services, such as changes to our policies.

All 4’s content is free to watch because we are a 100% advertiser-funded broadcaster. As a government-owned, not-for-profit organisation, the revenue we make from advertising doesn’t go to shareholders – it goes back into making more programmes.
