Nice to see the chevron back on Channel 4!

He's obviously got a thing for retro ITV - he was sporting a *beautiful* Tyne Tees Colour shirt (based on the 1979 ident) at the Vic & Bob live gig in Newcastle in February.

And now he’s been discussing ITV regions with Jools.

Tyne Tees, Central, LWT, Thames & Meridian all got a mention. He mentioned he has a T-shirt for most regions that he visits.

And they discussed how Tyne Tees’s original name was going to be Tyne Wear And Tees Television but they didn’t go with it for the obvious reason.

The launch of the All 4 app provides Virgin Media customers with the full All 4 experience for the first time, enabling them to enjoy even more programmes and on demand content than ever before.

All 4 is home to hundreds of box sets including iconic Channel 4 series as well as original and exclusive shows including US acquisitions Scrubs, Freaks and Geeks, Seinfeld and ER; featured channels such as Adult Swim and the best global drama from Walter Presents; and catch up from all of Channel 4’s broadcast channels.

A curated selection of films shown on Channel 4 and Film4 are also available to stream via the app.

Much-loved shows available to view at any time include hilarious comedies Friday Night Dinner, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Inbetweeners; reality TV from Gogglebox, Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins and Made in Chelsea; as well as popular titles such as Hollyoaks, Celebs Go Dating, The Great British Bake Off and many others.

David Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said:

This is great news for our customers who have everything they need in one place, making it even faster and easier to watch the TV shows and movies they love whenever they want.”

They’ve had the content forever, but the standalone app is new.

I wonder if they'll keep content via the old system as well? ITV Hub content is still available though their own system (albeit only in SD, and quite low bitrate SD at that) even though they've had the app for 18-odd months. Whereas BBC content has only been available though the iPlayer interface for years.

Surely across all platforms it's time the PSBs followed the BBC's lead and at least let you access their app via the red button from their own channel

They only had some of the content before - catch up and a limited selection of box sets.

The catch up for ITV was upgraded to HD a while ago.
