Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.

Optional – Step 4:
Buy an Channel 4 subscription
You can watch Channel 4 online for free. But if you want to skip ads or watch live TV, you’ll need 4 All+, which costs £3.99 per month.
Note: Some shows, especially All 4’s on-demand content, require users’ devices to be in the UK time zone. If you encounter a “clock error” message, open up your device’s settings and change your time zone to London or Dublin GMT+1hr. The device clock should get updated within a few minutes of making these changes, but it may take longer in some time cases.
