Freeview to launch smartphone app this month

Freeview is launching a new app - starting with iOS on 22 January - which will provide free on-the-go access to the nation’s most popular channels including the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.

As well as providing this service for free without the need for a subscription the Freeview app will give access to on-demand programmes from the BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5 and UKTV Play.

The new app will replace the current Freeview TV Guide app which simply lists what's on the TV service for the next seven days. This is a major step forward for the service and marks the first time you’ll be able to access content via Freeview without a traditional aerial.

The app will be available both on the Play Store and the App Store, though Android owners have a longer wait. Currently Freeview says it will be released in "spring 2019".
