What channels could I get on Freeview?

What do I need to get Freeview Play?


Freeview Play gives you access to more than 250 box sets from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and UKTV, including many of the best recently-aired programmes and classics from the archives.

We continue to add more box sets to the mix, so we recommend you check regularly to see what's new. Content is grouped under various categories ranging from Top Picks to Wildcard, and Comedy to Crime, so it's easy to find something that suits your mood.

Programme availability

Only complete series are available for box sets, so if one episode is missing from that series you won't be able to watch any of the content.

Programme availability is governed by rights, so if you've started watching a series, we encourage you to watch the rest of it as quickly as you can, as we can't guarantee the length of time that a series will be available to watch.


For more details on how box sets work and what's available on each of them it's best to visit the individual player pages:
