New Freeview mobile app launches January

TV service Freeview has announced 22nd January 2019 as the launch date for its new mobile app which provides viewers with a one-stop-shop for the country’s most watched TV shows.

Through the iOS app viewers will be able to stream live channels from BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and access on-demand content from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, and UKTV Play.

Further catch-up players and live streams will be added at a later date.

As with all Freeview products, the app is completely free to use with no download fee and no subscription. 

“In an increasingly fragmented media landscape, the new Freeview mobile app is an excellent example of broadcaster and industry collaboration in action,” commented Jonathan Thompson, CEO of Digital UK.

“Today’s viewers value having access to their favourite shows when and where they want and the new app provides the aggregated experience that consumers increasingly expect from a TV provider.

“We’re putting the best of free-to-air content – public service and commercial – in to one place on mobile just as we have on TV, ensuring that great, free tv is available to everyone wherever they are.”

An Android version will launch early 2019.
