Sarah Rose, Channel 4’s director of commercial and business development, said: “With the launch of More4 HD and the addition of Film4 HD, we’re thrilled to be able to complete the roll out of our HD portfolio.

“Alongside the wealth of services launching on Sky’s platforms, the data partnership with Sky will help us to understand how our audiences are enjoying our content across these platforms, bolstering our Viewer Engagement strategy which sees viewer data at the heart of Channel 4’s innovative programme and commercial strategies.”

Earlier this year, Sky customers also got More4 HD for the first time and catch up service 4oD arrived in the Sky On Demand library back in March. 

Film4 is also available on Sky Go, so you can watch movies and catch up on your laptop, phone or tablet though you can’t yet stream HD content everywhere.
