French IPTV network Free has made available its 20 basic ‘Freebox’ TV channels to subscribers that have access to an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. A web-based application delivers the channels that include France 2, France 3, NRJ Paris, NRJ 12, NRJ Hits, TV5, Al Jazeera, LCP and BFM.
Users can pause the content at any point and resume their viewing at a later point. The channels are available when connected to the Free Wi-Fi connection or the Free Wi-Fi community network.
Free has also opened up the APIs to allow developers of the iPhone, Android and other mobile terminals to create virtual remote controls to emulate the functionality of the Freebox HD remote.
