  • Channel 4 live streaming oddity

    So we have a Samsung TV and LG TV. On the Samsung TV the Channel 4 app lets you live stream, has an option for it from the main menu, nice and easy.

    But on the LG TV the Channel 4 app has no menu option to live stream and I can’t find it buried anywhere.

    The channel 4 website lets you live stream.

    So what am I missing? Is anyone with an LG TV able to stream channel 4 live, via the app?

    Aerial isn’t an option BTW, as we don’t have one.

    Samsung TV is about 4 years old. LG was purchased about 2 weeks ago but is a 2022 model.

    Has the Channel 4 app, so seems to be an app limitation rather than TV limitation.

    Is there an update available for the app? (Long shot, they usually auto-update).

    I don’t think my LG has a Channel 4 app at all even, thinking about it. I have to use the Xbox. Which is the answer really, some form of external device like a Fire Stick.

    Thanks Simon, least it’s not just me. Cougar, yeah the app came pre-installed. Uninstalled it and reinstalled as I thought it may be some janky version or not have auto updated.

    The channel 4 app in all its’ forms appears to have been a constant beta ever since it first cast it’s miserable shadow on a Chromecast all those years ago.
    It makes Red Bull TV look accomplished.

    I do have an aerial, a satellite dish and a chromecast connected to the tv so I can watch it live despite the rubbish app 🙂

    Thanks everyone. Looks like it’s a limitation of the Channel 4 app on LG TVs then, weird.
