The new iOS app is available in both iPhone and iPad versions, and brings it in line with the platform’s Apple TV app, both in design and functionalities. Chromecast is built in for viewing on a regular TV set.
The app allows to go back seven days for catch-up viewing and includes functions such as pause, fast forward (and back), search, and picture-in-picture.
Parental control is also possible, which can be administered by the main account holder. A Knippr subscription can be active on up to five different devices.
“In recent months, we gathered feedback from our customers so we could further develop the app to fully meet the needs of our customers. The eye-catcher of the new apps is the new ‘Look & feel.’ These are now on a par with popular apps like Netflix and YouTube. The apps now look much better and we’ve greatly improved user-friendliness,” said Jeffrey Leentjes, Senior Product Manager, Knippr.
“An example of this is the TV Guide, which is now well in line with our Apple TV 4 app. The guide is more focused on On Demand viewing, and using the new search feature you will find all your favourite programmes right away. Using the new Picture In-Picture feature, it’s even possible to keep watching your favourite programme while browsing our app.”
Knippr is an a la carte OTT service, launched by T-Mobile a year ago. Subscriptions are available starting at €9.99 a month, with no fixed contract. Channels can be added and removed on an a la carte basis.
