With something new and binge-worthy dropping every Friday, All 4 is the place to stream this November. From the coming-of-age dramedy Sugar Rush, to the award-winning laugh-out-loud comedy PhoneShop and cult classic Freaks and Geeks, we’ve got something fresh to fill your weekends.
So with those wintery evenings drawing in, curl up on the sofa and take a look at what’s streaming this November.
Described as ‘first rate drama’ by The Guardian, the BAFTA nominated cult-hit Sugar Rush explores the life, loves and lusts of Kim Daniels, a teenage lesbian living in 21st century Britain. Based on the novel by Julie Burchill, Kim's wry observations, her experiences of forbidden love for her best friend Sugar, and her attempts to come to grips with a rather dysfunctional family will take you on a coming-of-age journey.

PhoneShop centres on the working day of the employees of a mobile phone shop. With more pressure than ever to sell (and mis-sell), the staff of the Sutton branch of PhoneShop need to be completely focussed and at the top of their game. Unfortunately, there is a myriad of distractions stopping Ashley (Andrew Brooke), Jerwayne (Javone Prince), Janine (Emma Fryer), Christopher (Tom Bennett) and manager Lance (Martin Trenaman) from making sure every shopper within five square miles gets locked down to the tightest and most expensive mobile phone contract known to mankind.

OTHER TREATS ON ALL 4 IN NOVEMBER
If that wasn’t enough, All 4 also has brand new box sets of two Channel 4 hits and eight films from Channel 4’s Indian Film season.
After a series one finale that left viewers reeling, this series sets the action two years on, with Alyssa (Jessica Barden, The Lobster, the forthcoming Jungleland) still dealing with the fallout of the events of the first series. The acclaimed first series garnered a legion of fans and instantly became one of All 4’s most-binged shows.
It remains the best performing original All 4 Exclusive ever. The second series of the RTS Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated show sees the introduction of the new character of Bonnie, played by BIFA-winning Naomi Ackie. Bonnie is an outsider with a troubled past and a mysterious connection to Alyssa. As to the fate of James (Alex Lawther, Black Mirror), who we last saw shot on a beach at the end of series one, expectant fans will have to watch to find out. The entire second series is now available to stream on All 4.
