Terms of use

Watch4 provides an OTT service that allows our user and members to access movies and TV shows (“Watch4 content”) streamed over the Internet to certain Internet-connected TVs, computers and other devices ("Watch4 ready devices").

Watch4 is pursuing a “free” business model, meaning users will have the option of utilizing Watch4 free.

The Watch4 service is provided to you by Video Solutions AG, a Swiss corporation. These Terms of Use govern your use of our service. As used in these Terms of Use, "Watch4 service", "our service" or "the service" means the service provided by Watch4 for discovering and watching Watch4 content, including all features and functionalities, recommendations and reviews, the website, and user interfaces, as well as all content and software associated with our service.

1. Free Version

User can consume content for free, but have to watch the ads shown throughout the programs.

2. Membership

Free Watch4 membership will be available soon and will continue month-to-month until terminated.

2.1. Free trial eligibility is determined by Watch4 at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility to prevent free trial abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free trial and put Profil on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. We may use information such as device ID, method of payment or an account email address used with an existing or recent Watch4 membership to determine eligibility. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply.

During your Watch4 membership we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, license to access the Watch4 service and view Watch4 content. Except for the foregoing limited license, no right, title or interest shall be transferred to you. You agree not to use the service for public performances.

The content that may be available to watch will vary by geographic location and will change from time to time. The number of devices on which you may simultaneously watch depends on your chosen subscription plan and is specified on the "Profile" page.

Limitations apply, including restrictions on the number of Offline Titles per account, the maximum number of devices that can contain Offline Titles, the time period within which you will need to begin viewing Offline Titles and how long the Offline Titles will remain accessible.

3.7. The quality of the display of the Watch4 content may vary from device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection.

The Watch4 software may vary by device and medium, and functionalities and features may also differ between devices. You acknowledge that the use of the service may require third party software that is subject to third party licenses. You agree that you may automatically receive updated versions of the Watch4 and related third-party software.

4. Passwords and Account Access

The member who created the Watch4 account and whose Payment Method is charged (the "Account Owner") has access and control over the Watch4 account and the Watch4 ready devices that are used to access our service. To maintain control over the account and to prevent anyone from accessing the account (which would include information on viewing history for the account), the Account Owner should maintain control over the Watch4 ready devices that are used to access the service and not reveal the password nor details of the Payment Method associated with the account to anyone. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to Profil. We can terminate Profile or place Profile on hold in order to protect you, Watch4 or our partners from identity theft or other fraudulent activity.
