What is All 4 error code ALL4-011

The ALL4-011 error code will appear on your screen after an advert has played while you are currently streaming a show on All 4.

This error code typically shows up as:

  • ALL4-011: This content is unavailable

What does ALL4 011 mean?

Just as the error code states, the content you are wanting to watch is unavailable, even though you have been watching it up until the advert played.

The is because there is some sort of bug that is interfering with All 4 playing its content successfully. The items have not suddenly disappeared off of the apps library.

Why has All 4 stopped working?

This error code transpires after an advert has played because the app is glitching when it’s trying to reload the content you are watching.

The reason for this error code comes from:

  1. The All 4 server is experiencing issues. It may be down for planned maintenance, or, the server has gone down due to a software glitch or corrupted data.
  2. Internet issues will interfere with your All 4 being able to stream properly as the connection will not be good enough to withhold the amount of data that needs to be processed.
  3. Malware software on your device. If you are accessing All 4 via your computer or mobile device, malware may cause issues when you are trying to stream via the app.

Before proceeding with the troubleshooting fixes to eradicate this error code coming up on your All 4 app, check to see if the All 4 app is definitely not down due to server issues by using this link.

If this link confirms that the channel is down, there is nothing you can do other than wait until the problem is fixed.
