Samsung have added Channel 4’s 4oD catch-up TV service to their range of connected Smart TVs.
Available through Samsung Apps, the company’s Smart TV service portal, 4oD offers thirty days worth of recently-broadcast content from the likes of Channel 4 and More 4, alongside archive content.
Shows like BrassEye and Peep Show are all available to be viewed on demand.
“We’re pleased to be able to extend the availability of 4oD, our successful video on demand service, to Samsung’s Smart TVs as we continue to widen the reach of Channel 4 content onto key platforms,” said Sarah Milton, head of video on demand at Channel 4.
“Smart TV owners will now be able to catch up with recent popular Channel 4 programmes and access many shows from Channel 4’s vast archive spanning 30 years of broadcasting – on demand via their television.”
The app is available to all Samsung Smart TVs released in 2012, or newer.
The announcement follows a similar move by Sky, who also recently added 4oD to their catch-up TV offering.
