Thought you had caught up on all the best TV during lockdown? Think again.

From The Masked Singer and Ru Paul, to Industry and It’s a Sin, Freeview Play is now home to over 30,000 hours of on-demand TV. That’s 3.5 years’ worth of boxset binging bliss!

Increasing its content by more than half in just two years, Freeview Play’s extraordinary offering is available to watch for free in its entirety, with no hidden costs or subscription fees.

The news comes following the addition of new players, alongside the drive from British broadcasters to make even more on-demand TV available for all, with new box sets, old favourites, brand new dramas and educational programming being added to the platform each day. 

As Freeview Play is free, it is impervious to any annual price hikes or surges, meaning viewers can be confident that the only thing they will ever see rise will be the hours of content available to enjoy.

Harnessing both quality and quantity in its portfolio of shows, Freeview Play is home to 95% of the nation’s favourite TV, providing access to ten on-demand players: BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, UKTV Play, CBS Catchup Channels UK, Horror Bites, STV Player, POP Player and BBC Sounds. 

With such an extensive range available, Freeview Play makes it easy for viewers to find their favourite shows and discover new ones. There’s a universal search functionality alongside a carousel of handpicked recommendations from across the platform.

Owen Jenkinson, Marketing Director at Freeview commented:

'As we continue to stay at home, TV is one way we can stay connected. With over 30,000 hours of content, Freeview Play’s incredible line up is free and easily accessible to all, so whether it’s discussing a Prue Leith innuendo or a First Dates disaster, we can all get involved in the conversation.’

Since launching in 2015, Freeview Play has sold over 13 million devices, and has over 9 million regular users, making it the fastest growing TV platform in the UK.
