It has never been easier to connect with the Freeview television audience. The Connect TV Single Channel service utilises IP-delivered, linear streams to steer content directly to your TV or set-top box (STB). Connect TV's Single Channel service represents a chance to achieve a near ubiquitous service; your IP-delivered content can be received on the majority of all internet connected Freeview HD devices. Streaming content couldn’t be simpler.

Connecting with Freeview and freesat audiences just got easier and more cost effective...

We give channel providers an option when traditional broadcast may not be an option. A channel delivered via Arqiva's Single Channel service will appear as any other; remaining part of the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), housing a dedicated channel number and incorporating all other standard functionality viewers have now come to expect. Who said change is difficult?
