With Freeview Play, you can enjoy the biggest shows live and on demand, all together in one place and all for free.
With over 70 TV channels, 15 HD channels and 7 on demand players, that’s a whole lot of something for nothing. Just make sure your TV or recorder is connected to the internet and you’re good to go.
Select the Freeview Play app on your TV’s app page, or visit channel 100 to access all our on demand players, our Search and Recommendations features and support from the Help & Alerts section, all in one place.
Curl up on the sofa with TV on demand from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, UKTV Play, CBS Catchup Channels UK and Horror Bites all in one place with the Freeview channels. With over 20,000 hours of TV on demand you definitely won’t be stuck for something to watch.
A minimum broadband speed of 2Mbps is required to watch catch up and on demand services – this will count towards any monthly broadband data allowance. Only selected channels provide 7-day catch up.
Follow these simple steps to get set up and start watching the shows you love, at a time that suits you.
Either add to your current set-up with an easy to install Freeview Play recorder from Humax or Panasonic or, why not grab a Freeview Play TV from LG, Panasonic, Sony, JVC, Hisense, Hitachi, Bush, Sharp, Toshiba or Philips where it’s all built in and ready to go.
Okay, now your Freeview Play TV or Freeview Play recorder has arrived, make sure your aerial is plugged in securely then, using the built-in Wi-Fi, connect your new TV or box to the internet. It’s that simple.
Making the most of your new system is easy. By bringing together live TV and on demand services in one TV guide, Freeview Play lets you access last week’s shows as well as live TV in one place. Plus, you can find even more programmes with apps including YouTube or paid for services such as Netflix, NOW TV and Prime Video (check apps available on the product before you buy).
In short, Freeview Play puts on demand services with live TV in one easy to use package.
You’ll need a Freeview Play TV or recorder: plug in your aerial, then follow the setup instructions on screen. Connect to the internet then, once online check for the latest software. Then tune in to find the Freeview channels available to you.
