We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that live in the UK and own an Apple iPad, as we’ve just received word that Channel 4 has recently launched its 4oD Catch Up application. What’s even better is the fact that it’s free to download, but only for a limited amount of time.
As Ben Griffin over on the knowyourmobile.com website recently noted, the 4oD Catch Up application will not just enable users to catch up on all their favorite TV shows from Channel 4, but it will also allow them to watch shows from other channels such as More4 and E4 direct on their iPad.
The 4oD Catch Up app has a 30-day catch up window, so you’ll be able to watch shows from a few weeks ago. The app will enable you to watch each show as much as you like for free for a whole month, providing that it is a UK show. Unfortunately US shows don’t feature on the app at this stage.
However, Channel 4 has said that it is currently working on adding American content very soon. The 4oD Catch Up app can only stream shows when the iPad is connected to Wi-Fi and the device must be running iOS 4.0 or above, although support for iOS 3.0 is said to be arriving soon. Will you download this app?
