The ongoing tech issues are the result of technical problems at a broadcast centre, which resulted in several channels going off air on Saturday.

Channel 4, Channel 5, BBC, Paramount Network and 4 Music were all among those who were affected by a fire alarm.

According to Red Bee Media, there had been an "activation of the fire suppression systems", at its broadcast centre in west London.

A Channel 4 spokeswoman confirmed to BBC that the ongoing issue was still inked to this problem.

Meanwhile, it seems the technical difficulties the channel is experiencing is widespread, as Channel 4 also tweeted about the same "tech issue”.

It said on Twitter on Tuesday: “Sadly we’re still experiencing some tech issues which means some viewers may have problems watching our channels or access services. Sorry for the ongoing disruption – we’ll let you know here as and when we have updates.”
