4od-blueChannel 4 has announced they will be making all its archived programming available on its website free of charge. According to the channel, the move will make them the first UK broadcaster to make such content available for free on the internet.
From July archived content will be added to channel4.com’s 4oD catch-up service allowing users to watch past Channel 4 shows including Queer As Folk, Trigger Happy TV and Drop The Dead Donkey.Channel 4 has taken the decision to close its 4oD desktop application once all the archived content is available via Channel4.com.

Jon Gisby, Director of Future Media & Technology at Channel 4 said: “We were the first broadcaster to launch a comprehensive video-on-demand service in 2006 and since that time 4oD has become one of the UK’s most popular VOD brands. The addition of archived content to 4oD on channel4.com means we will be the only UK broadcaster to have all of our content available online. We are extremely proud of the new and improved service and think the combination of fantastic content that’s easy to find and view will prove a compelling service for all users.”
