Subtitles via Watch Live are supported on most of our programming and platforms (Amazon, Roku, iOS, Android and within a web browser) however not everything will carry subtitles either because none are available or, as in the case of some of our older content, because the subtitle format is not compatible (e.g Everybody Loves Raymond, Frasier, etc.). If subtitles are available, an 'S' button will be visible on screen.
If you are having any issues with the subtitles via Watch Live please get in touch via our CONTACT US form.

Channel 4 must acquire specific rights to provide programmes on All 4 that aren't always covered by existing television rights. Therefore it can't be guaranteed that all programmes will be available to view.
All 4 uses geo-blocking software to detect where your computer is located when it connects to the internet. Occasionally you may be accessing from the UK or ROI but the software mistakenly thinks your location is outside this area, and so blocks your access to All 4. This is most likely caused by the way your Internet Service Provider sets up and manages Your account. We suggest you contact your Internet Service Provider and explain the problem, which they should be able to resolve.
