Quest’s top programmes will be made accessible with YouView from today via the brand new on demand player, Quest OD and YouView’s seven day scroll back function within the programme guide.

Quest OD will show new and exclusive series such as Hot and Dangerous with Omid Djalili plus peak time favourites including Salvage Hunters, Robson Green: Extreme Fisherman, Toy Hunters and Overhaulin’.

“Quest is one of the fastest growing free-to-air channels amongst men. Adding Quest OD to YouView will help more viewers enjoy the channel and its great content whenever it suits them.”

“We’re delighted Quest has decided to launch its catch up player on YouView. This adds even more great on demand content to our seamless and easy to use TV service for our customers to enjoy.”

The Quest OD player has launched, with a technical backend and front-end user experience crafted by the newly-launched Connected Solutions team.

“Quest OD is a great demonstration of the strengths our two companies’ combined offering can bring to YouView. Capablue has years of experience building players for YouView and brings this unique insight to Arqiva’s heritage in television distribution.”

Quest OD, the channel’s first long-form video on demand player, launched online in August this year. Visit Quest OD at
