The reason for their success? Well, it's because Channel 4 are big spenders on original content.

A Snapshot of Channel 4 Programming

We mentioned that Channel 4 were big spenders. In fact, £489m was spent on original content in the past year with shows like It's A Sin and Before We Die being commissioned. Channel 4 also spends big coin securing the rights to some of the best local and international series. Plus they've also secured the rights to broadcast sports. A recent purchase was made so fans can now watch the highlights of the Formula One.

Channel 4 even managed to snatch the the rights to The Great British Bake Off from the BBC. Check out the trailer below to get a taste of what the show is all about.

There's also plenty of light-hearted entertainment that you just cannot find elsewhere such as Gogglebox and Married at First Sight.

Beebs is here to help you stream without a VPN

It may seem like Channel 4 is only available to be watched from within the United Kingdom. Ordinarily, if you try and watch it while abroad, you'll be denied access. Installing a VPN (virtual private network) has become a popular way of getting around this hurdle, but it isn't always effective. Yes, they can work to hide your IP address, but it often comes at the cost of a slower internet connection. This often ruins the experience of watching the show.

A speedier and more lightweight way of masking your IP address is by using a Google Chrome extension. It is faster because it only connect to the webpage you need and they are generally cheaper because of this reason. Here at Beebs we have built such an extension. This is the best pathway to watching Channel 4 when abroad.
