All4 and Ride upon the Storm

Hi, I can't find Series 2 of Ride upon the Storm on my telly (Virgin Tivo)? It's been advertised as available on All 4 but when I look under On Demand it's not there (other programmes are but not this)? Have been looking for the past week but still no joy.

Can someone help? Thanks.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

We watch this too but, even looking on the iPad version of the All4 app, I can only see the first episode of series two. I guess it’s not being shown.

Still don’t understand why there’s a huge amount of robins dead in the intro sequence. Robins don’t flock.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

That's strange isn't it.

Can someone from Virgin advise?  We deliberately haven't started watching the first episode (which is available) if the rest isn't going to be available!

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

I’m sorry but this is not a Virgin Media issue.

You should speak to Channel 4 about their plans for this program.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

@Blackbird1 

As we enjoy this program, I have further reviewed its availability just now.

At the moment it looks like this is one of those Walter Presents series where only the first episode is available on the TV channel and all other episodes available exclusively on the All4 app (where you can’t avoid the adverts).

Virgin Media does not have access to the All4 app on their boxes, just a catch up service for broadcast material.

Contrary to what I said above, all episodes of series 2 are now available on the All4 app on my iPad and my Smart TV.

Enjoy.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

Hi there, sorry for the late response.

Ok, so not available on Virgin then. Pity. Does this mean it might be available on Catch up at a future date?

Thanks

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

No, I don’t think so.

Where Channel 4 uses this way of forcing adverts on you, it won’t come to Virgin Media.

Perhaps the reason there is no All4 app on the V6 box.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

@Blackbird1 

I have some good news and some bad news.

Bad news - my update above was wrong.

Good news - most episodes have been added for streaming yesterday.

I suggest changing your series link to streaming only to get the episodes into My Shows.

There does seem to be an issue, in that episode 2 doesn’t seem to be there.

We’ll probably watch it on the All4 app on our smart TV.

Re: All4 and Ride upon the Storm

Ah, thanks for the heads up. Have checked & yes all the episodes are now there but not episode 2!! This drives me nuts as this has happened before with other programmes where there've been missing episodes. We are already paying the XL package tariff & for this, we get sub standard service.

I guess I will have to download the app & watch that episode on my tiny phone (no smart tv or tablet).
