"Channel 5! The channel that brings you England goals!" -- Jonathan Pearce, 31 May 1997

On hiatus from 1 January 2019. Perhaps I take the drawbacks of the written word *too* seriously.

Let's hope the picture quality is 1080p as the current All 4 quality of (seemingly) 240p is bloody awful.

Yes - All4 is unwatchable on a decent sized TV screen. Whilst almost every other broadcaster streaming service hits at least 720p - All4 is still stuck at sub-SD quality.

Hopefully the new Channel 4/Sky deal (which tied into C4 getting F1 highlights from Sky, in return for Sky getting more C4 on-demand content) means that Sky viewers will get all the All4 content (currently you only get content that has had a linear broadcast) in 1080i. This is particularly important for 'Walter Presents' stuff where often only the first episode gets a linear outing.

My biggest gripe with All4, and I bring this up at any opportunity I can during the Core4 surveys, is that native 4:3 content is both stretched and cropped, so you're left with a big chunk of the picture missing, and what's left is deformed. It's so disappointing because it spoils the otherwise amazing back catalogue that they have.

Channel 4 has gone all purple with their idents today to mark 'PurpleLightUp', celebrating the contribution people with disabilities make to the economy and the workplace in their usual way by including a hashtag onscreen, although this time over dedicated idents.
