How will I know which programmes are available on catch up?

Posted September 21, 2015 - Living with Freeview Play

Depending on the product, there are two main ways to watch catch up TV within the TV guide:

  1. On some TVs and recorders the catch up programmes shown depend on which channel you’re watching. When you scroll back in the TV guide, you should see catch up TV programmes that are available from the last 7 days for that channel.
  2. Alternatively you will see the full TV guide for all channels as you scroll back. Here, you will find available catch up programmes identified with an icon.

Not all programmes are available for catch up as the rights need to be cleared with programme makers eg US TV series and films are not always available.

Catch up from the TV guide is not available for ITV HD and C4 HD channels.
