Android handsets and Apple’s iPad have joined the digital TV revolution with the launch of the Freeview HD app for both platforms.
Essentially, Freeview HD is a free TV guide for every channel available through the service, although the app also includes the ability to share watchlists via Facebook, Twitter and email.
The app will be available to use offline and will additionally allow users to leave reminders for their favourite upcoming shows.
“Freeview aims to offer the best subscription-free TV service possible and the upgrade of our Freeview HD TV Guide app underlines this,” states Adrian Mack, new media manager for Freeview.
“We want as many of our viewers to be able to benefit from the new features, with the Android and tablet market opening doors to an even wider audience – as well as offering new features such as the personalised recommendations to new and existing users.”
