Channel 4 apologises for more technical issues after Countdown is cancelled

Channel 4 has apologised to viewers after its services suffered further ‘technical issues’ on Friday afternoon, which saw last-minute swaps in its scheduling.

The broadcaster has experienced a number of major outages since September, caused by issues at the broadcast centre which handles its playout services.

Friday’s 2:10pm broadcast of Countdown was replaced by an episode of Find It, Fix It, Flog It, while the channel also didn’t show its scheduled episode of Moneybags afterwards.

A statement posted on Twitter said: ‘We’ve experienced temporary technical issues related to the new operating process that was put in place after the outage.

‘We are working to rectify it as quickly as possible but can confirm that the peak schedule is unaffected.’

Viewers had taken to Twitter earlier to air their frustration over the missing shows.
