Freeview has released a new version of its streaming app that will bring live free-to-air TV to Android tablets.
The Freeview FV app allows viewers to live stream 20 free-to-air channels, with catch-up content also available from all the metropolitan networks. The new Android tablet version joins the existing versions for Android phones and iOS devices that launched last November.
“Freeview FV is a great way for consumers to access their favourite content, anytime, anywhere, and we’re pleased to be able to roll out the app on Android tablets, giving consumers even more choice and flexibility in how they choose to watch their TV,” said Freeview CEO Liz Ross.
Current channels available for streaming through the Freeview FV app include: ABC, SBS, Seven, Channel 9, TEN, ONE, Eleven ABC2/ABC KIDS, ABC ME, ABC News 24, SBS VICELAND, Food Network, NITV, 7TWO, 7Mate, 7Flix, Racing.com, 9Gem, 9Go! and 9Life.
“We’ve seen a really great response to Freeview FV since the launch last November, as users make the most of the app’s live and catch-up content to stream news and entertainment on their morning commute, or their favourite TV programs in the evening,” said Ross.
Freeview FV is available now through the Google Play store and the Apple App Store.
