Virgin’s oddly shaped and oddly named tellyphone, the Lobster, might not have made a monumental impact on our gogglebox-obsessed lives just yet, but Channel 4 has already decided to throw its full weight behind the service.Previously only available in a special ‘Shortcuts’ version, the coolest of all terrestrial channels (that’s Channel 4 in case you were confused) will now supply its full live content, rather than just the highlights package.As a result, the TV-on-the-go service now sports five whole channels including BBC One, ITV1, E4 and new arrival ITN News, not to mention 50 DAB radio stations. You need never miss Deal or No Deal again.
