Why can't I watch Freeview from abroad?

Freeview is a UK-based service – we're not set up for broadcasting in other countries, who have their own TV services.

That's no reason to lose hope, though. Before you leave the UK, use the Freeview mobile app to find any on-demand or catch-up content you want to watch, then tap it to be taken through to the relevant player to download, and you can watch it through the player, wherever you are.
