Why do I need to sign in to separate players for the app?

The Freeview mobile app links to the channels' own players to make sure you get the best viewing experience and range of viewing options.

The app makes it really easy to see what's available to watch across BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5 and UKTV Play. Once you've found something to watch, you just need to link to the content – and this is why you need to be signed in to each individual player.

So make sure you have all the players' apps downloaded – you can find them listed in the My Freeview area of the app at any time.
