How often should I update my app?

We recommend that you upgrade the Freeview mobile app every time newer versions become available. This will make sure you're getting the most out of Freeview, with the latest features and no bugs.

The best way to do this is to allow automatic updates on your mobile device. That way, if there's been an update to the app, you should get a pop-up message when you log in, and all you need to do is follow the instructions to download.

How to allow automatic updates will vary depending on your device – if you're stuck, check its instruction manual or look up the instructions on the manufacturer's website. Or you can check Google Play for Android or the App Store for iOS to see when a new version becomes available.

Keeping everything updated

Remember that you also need to keep your other separate players up to date as well – namely BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5 and UKTV Play.

It's likely you'll be prompted to update them too, but it's worth checking the instructions on each individual player.
