The future of the Freeview platform

Freeview Play is the future of the Freeview platform, a new hybrid service launched in September 2015 offering viewers access to all of Freeview’s existing services along with on-demand content such as BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All 4 and My 5 all in one place.

The service enables viewers to take advantage of several new features, including:

  • A 7 day backwards Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) allowing viewers to simply scroll back in the TV guide to watch shows they’ve missed from the last 7 days
  • Access to on-demand players to watch catch-up and on-demand content
  • Powerful search and recommendations features
  • Use the Freeview Explore app on channel 100 to find their favourite content

All that is required to take advantage of the new features is a Freeview Play TV or set-top box to be connected to the internet and it's all available subscription free.

Freeview continues to be robust and relevant for the future

The launch of Freeview Play proves the commitment of the platform to remain relevant to its viewing audience with changing viewing demands.

Freeview continues to evolve and this latest development will only help the platform grow and strengthen its position as the UK’s most popular TV platform.
