4seven, the channel showcasing the best Channel 4 programming from the last seven days.

4seven is a new public UK television channel.

According to the Freeview digital program schedule, 4seven broadcasts programs 24-hours per day (5 AM – 9:15 AM is used for advertising promotions). You may need to retune your Freeview receiver to access it. Presumably, like Channel 4, program broadcasts are periodically interrupted for commercial advertisements.

The following scheduled programs matched search terms for new content in the next week:

19:00 4th July
Supersize vs Superskinny

Dr Christian Jessen’s feeding clinic opens its doors for a new series of the show where a Supersize and Superskinny swap places and diets.

22:00 4th July, (and two repeats later in the week)
Undercover Boss

In the first of the new series, Fouad Haghighat goes undercover in his dad’s pizza delivery company to discover shocking health and safety breaches, but also some inspirational workers.

Four other scheduled programs match for Channel 4 (notably 2nd July Coming Up:New Cross, and 7th July T4:Summer Daze). It will be interesting to see if they appear on 4seven.

Channel 4 often broadcasts short experimental programs late at night, which are not available online. There weren’t any matches on 4seven for program titles 4thought, music on 4, random acts, school disco, lucky escape. River Cottage Bites was the only 15-minute (or briefer) program in the schedule.
