Series 2 of Witnesses starts on BBC Four this Saturday. The first series was on C4/Walter Presents.

Whatever people may think of pay tv, Sky Atlantic and Arts have been a godsend for world drama for the shows Walter Presents haven't acquired for All4.


And they're in watchable quality... All4-only content (which is much of the Walter Presents catalogue) not being available on Sky VOD means I've given up trying to watch. The quality is dismal via their streaming routes (Chromecast, iOS app and HDMI Cable, browser etc.)

Hope not to come across too biased, but the PS4 streaming seems to be decent, even though they don’t bother to upload in HD, and is literally the only subtitled programming, with no subtitles available for programmes in English.

What size screen are you watching on. All the All4 streamed content I've seen looks sub-SD quality (massively worsse than Sky's SD VOD - let alone HD - on a Sky+HD box) when watched on a 50" display (i.e. my 4K TV)

It has not gone down well if you read the replies.

Anyone know when Walter Presents will be showing seasons 2 and 3 of RTL Nederlands "The Swingers" or to give it its proper Dutch title, "Het Nieuwe Buren" (The New Neighbours)?

First ep The Bridge ends on cliffhanger, BBC2 trailer immediately spoils it. Nice work #TheBridge

For that very reason I switch off/over the moment the 'next week' trailer or clips appear.

When Spiral was last on BBC Four, I decided to watch on iPlayer instead for exactly that reason.
