It’s available to devices running Android 4.4 KitKat and above.
Live channels can be streamed from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 as well as on demand content from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, and UKTV Play. The app acts as a portal to the apps by the individual broadcasters, meaning that a second app must also be downloaded.
Where the app comes into its own is through a universal search across the Freeview channels and on demand channels. There is also a TV Guide covering the Freeview output.
At the same time Freeview has released data on the most popular shows viewed by those using the iOS version. Typically these include breakfast TV shows BBC Breakfast and ITV’s Good Morning Britain, alongside sporting events Wimbledon and the Women’s World Cup.
Anthropology game show Love Island also gets a mention.
