Today it was announced that some more televisions will soon support Freeview Play.
These new televisions include those from Hisense, Sharp, Toshiba, and Blaupunkt, who will all be building the Freeview Play catch-up service into their TVs, joining the already existing JVC, LG, and Panasonic sets.
In case you don’t know, Freeview Play is an on-demand catch-up service from the UK-based Free-to-air digital service, allowing you to play programmes from a number of broadcasters such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, and UKTV with the ability to rewind programs, or fast forward in them, with the ability to watch catch-up content or live TV content.
Guy North, Freeview’s managing director said the following about it:
“With new manufacturers on board, Freeview Play has become the most-widely adopted catch-up TV platform in the UK, which is no mean feat in just over a year.”
“Freeview Play now has the content, functionality and distribution to really deliver scale in the TV market, meaning we are well on our way to achieving our ambition of making connected viewing accessible and affordable for everyone.”
