It has today bee announced that UKTV’s on-demand service will be coming to Freeview Play.
This will mean the owners of Freeview Play boxes or TVs will be able to catch-up with content from UKTV’s content by scrolling backwards through the TV guide, this will include a number of programmes from the likes of Dave, Yesterday, Really and Drama.
Support for this will be rolled over the next few months.
At which point, the UKTV Play app will be available across Freeview Play devices, and can be booted up through the EPG. It will provide access to collections of shows that have been organised by themes or moods, and will allow users to view both their history and resume playback of unfinished streams.
This comes after the UKTV Play app has already launched on YouView, the Amazon Fire TV, Virgin Media, iOS, Android and PC.
