New Features Announced for Explore Freeview Play TV App – SEENIT


Freeview is rolling out an upgrade to its content discovery app on Freeview Play-branded TVs and set-top boxes.

Combining over 80 live TV channels with catch-up apps such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5 and STV Player, Freeview Play hosts over 40,000 hours of on-demand content.

The revamped Explore Freeview Play TV app introduces new genres of recommendations and a new area dedicated to box sets “to enable viewers to make the most of Freeview’s library of on-demand content”.

The app, accessible on Channel 100, also retains its multi-player search feature and viewers will also be able to curate their own watchlists through a new My Shows feature.

Owen Jenkinson of Freeview Play commented, “We are continually evolving and adding new free features so that we can deliver great value to consumers.

“With the Women’s Euro and the Love Island final just days away, millions of us will soon be on the hunt for our next TV obsession and these latest updates from Freeview Play will be here to help.”

Owned and controlled by broadcasters, the Freeview Play interface ensures visibility of their catch-up apps and is built into many smart TVs sold in the UK, although it is absent from Samsung, the UK’s top-selling brand. -United.

Although still the UK’s dominant television platform, Freeview faces growing competition from rivals as well as technical limitations. Last month, the platform lost a number of channels, including BBC News HD, and several of the broadcaster’s main catch-up apps remain limited to offering standard definition programming.
