Advantages: Funny, light hearted.
Disadvantages: Nothing too serious.
When I purchased a freeview box a couple of years ago, I had the aim of watching one channel in mind, and that was e4.
E4 is another channel behind the makers or channel 4 designed at the younger demographic, teenagers and young adults. The channel aims to be a little different, a bit arty, wacky and funky.
The channel shows classic American comedies such as Friends, Scrubs, Gilmore girls, and the Hills, all of which I really enjoy. It shows the Friends episodes just at the right times, when I am getting in from dinner and when I am spaced out in the evening looking for something light hearted to watch.
E4 also acts in a partnership with channel four in the programmes it shows. For example when channel four is running with a series such as big brother, E4 houses the off shoots, which can be designed a little less for mainstream TV, such as big brother's big mouth and big brother's little brother.
Incase you miss a show that you want to see on E4, there is a little bit of extra time as E4 has a plus one channel, E4 plus one, which repeats what E4 was showing an hour ago. This is great as I am always turning the TV on and realising I have just missed what was on before. Another great way to catch TV programmes that you miss on E4 is the internet. Channel four website has a section called OD which is on demand, where you can catch up on your favorite programmes.
For something, light humerous and easy to watch I would recommend E4. It is never going to have hard hitting documentaries or politics or news, but I like it for what it does show.
Summary: Good for an easy entertaining watch.
