French private broadcaster TF1 has launched a dedicated application in the Apple App Store for both iPhone and iPad. The app gives access to streaming live content, as well as on-demand catch-up TV and ‘bonus’ content.
The broadcaster has said the TF1 Vision app will offer at least 80 hours a week of fresh programming, “representing the variety and richness of TF1’s programme grid”. The app comes free of charge.
The application also offers social media integration via its TF1&Vous (TF1 and you) functionality, which connects the channel to Facebook. The broadcaster claims it is the most popular media company in Europe on Facebook with over 4 million fans. “We are leaders in social TV”.
