Channel 4's on-demand video service 4oD has now arrived on Samsung Smart TVs. Launching on Samsung Apps, the smart TV-based app store, it brings with it 30 days of catch up as well as access to the 4oD content archive of classic shows.

This means programmes such as BrassEye, Peep Show and other already aired Channel 4 content will be available to watch. You can also view nearly every show that has aired on Channel 4 in the past 30 days.

The Channel 4 catch-up service recently launched on Sky TV and YouView, bringing it inline for the most part, with BBC iPlayer's availability.

“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 on to 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 on every 2012 Samsung Smart TV. It sits alongside other apps like Netflix, Spotify and Facebook. 

For those without a Samsung television, Sky recently added 4oD to its on-demand service. Don't forget either, that the Xbox has plenty of similar capabilities.
