British Broadcaster Channel 4 Releases 'All 4' On-Demand App for Apple TV
After months of uncertainty over when it would finally drop, British broadcaster Channel 4 on Monday officially brought its All 4 on-demand service to Apple TV in the form of a dedicated tvOS app.
Channel 4 is the last of the major terrestrial British broadcasters – BBC, ITV, and Channel 5 – to release dedicated apps for Apple TV. Prior to Monday’s release, the only way TV viewers in the U.K. could watch the channel on Apple TV was by using the All 4 app on iPhone or iPad and streaming the feed over AirPlay.
Thankfully, that’s no longer the case, as the All 4 app for Apple TV includes all the free box sets and on-demand catch-up services viewers have come to expect of the iOS app.

To access the service, regular viewers can log in using their existing account details, while new users will need to sign up for a free account on the Channel 4 website.
After logging in, viewers can use the Home tab to discover content and continue watching shows they’ve started, find shows using the Search tab, and manage their account via the My4 tab.
All that’s missing now is TV app and universal Siri search integration, both of which are expected to come next year. The All 4 app for Apple TV is available to U.K. users for free on the tvOS App Store.
