How to Get Channel 4 On Demand Outside of the UK?

In the UK, Channel 4 is a free-to-air public broadcaster. Not only are there some amazing TV series like Coach Trip and Undercover Boss, but the channel also broadcasts many sports events for free.

Several shows and documentaries are waiting to be explored by you. You can watch Channel 4 UK live stream online with All 4.

Watching Channel 4 live online

All 4 or 4oD (which it was called earlier) is the Channel 4 catch-up and on-demand service. It is the place to catch up on episodes you missed on the channel. You can also watch the programs broadcasted by its sister channels, E4 and More4.

To watch Made in Chelsea, 4oD keeps the episodes for the next 30 days, and you can also catch up on Hollyoaks. There are thousands of hours of content available for free of charge. Most of the contents, though, expire after 30 days after they broadcast on Channel 4.

With 4oD, First Dates, Come to Dine with Me, Kitchen Nightmares, and many other shows are available without a cost. Being said that, Channel 4 is really one of the best UKTV channels. They have some good programs available in the catalog as an alternative to the premium channels.

Apart from Made in Chelsea, Hollyoaks, and others mentioned above, American shows are broadcasted for free.

There is The Big Bang Theory, the comedy series, and Homeland, the thriller show. You can watch the British reality show, Gogglebox, on All 4. There are other entertainment series like 24 Hours in Police Custody, Speed With Guy Martin, Catch Up, and Car S.O.S., to name a few.

You also get to watch quite some sports events like NFL and races like Formula 1. And the service is available on a range of streaming devices like Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

To get it on bigger screens, you can access it with browsers in Windows PC and Mac and the gaming consoles PlayStation and Xbox. They also have their streaming available with select smart TVs and set-top boxes.

Watch All 4 in the US

There are plenty of programs available on Channel 4. However, the on-demand streaming service, All 4, works in the same way as BBC iPlayer or ITV Player.

It is available only to viewers in the geographical boundary of the UK. So, whether you are British here in the US or an American attracted to freemium programs, you can’t watch it unless you’re in Britain.

But there is a little workaround if you’re interested in watching the British shows or just the American ones for free.

The first and only step you need to take is to invest in a good VPN. There are many free VPNs out there but for a trouble-free experience, sign up for a paid one. You can check our detailed review and comparison of various premium VPNs available in the market.

With your device connected to a British VPN server, you get a local IP of, say, England and enjoy all the fantastic content of 4.

Not only this, but with the best VPN service, you also get a strong encryption system. This gives you privacy. As the data packets are encrypted, your ISP won’t spy on what you are watching. You are anonymous and safe, at least on the Internet.

With a VPN, you can access another part of the world; I mean the Internet contents, no matter where you are. If you want a recommendation,

I would like to choose either ExpressVPN or NordVPN. They are top in the class. You get support for good streaming speeds, and no logs of your activity are kept while you are connected to their servers.

Check our detailed VPN setup guide and see for yourself how easy it is to set one up. (Read USTVNow Kodi Addon)
