Channel 4 HD and All4 to leave Freesat on 22nd February 2018

All 4 and 4HD will be leaving Freesat on Thursday 22nd February, 2018.

Channel 4 is still available in standard definition, but any recordings you have scheduled for 4HD will need to be re-set in SD (via channel 104).

Channel 4 hasn’t provided a reason why it has made the highly controversial move and Freesat says it hopes the channels will return in the future. But a statement available on the internet supposedly from a Channel 4 spokesperson says : “We’re disappointed Freesat is changing its charging structure, leading to a very significant cost increase for Channel 4, which ultimately takes funding away from our content investment budget. To reduce the overall burden of our Freesat costs and make internal savings we have regrettably given notice to withdraw All 4 and C4 HD while we consider our long term relationship with Freesat.”. IF this is a case, then it is simply down to a cost issue.
