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 Demand 5 all in one place.

The service enables viewers to simply scroll back in the TV guide to watch shows they’ve missed from the last 7 days. All they require is making sure their Freeview Play enabled recorder or TV is 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.
