YouView, the subscription free UK TV service which seamlessly combines catch up and on demand, has today launched a free YouView App marking its first foray into companion devices.
The new app, currently available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, provides listings for over 70 digital TV and radio channels for the next seven days, with full programme information details. It also allows YouView customers to record their favourite television programmes, onto their YouView set-top box, while on the move.
Richard Halton, Chief Executive Officer, YouView said,
“We are really excited about our new YouView App – it gives customers a new way to find the content they love and the flexibility to record programmes on the go. This is just the first stage in our companion device strategy, offering even more value to UK consumers, and we plan to extend the functionality of this app as part of our on-going development of the YouView proposition.”
YouView offers seven day catch-up from BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 as well as a library of on demand television programmes, films and radio. The easy-to-use TV service has record, pause and rewind TV functionality as well as a simple search feature.
The YouView App is compatible with all YouView set-top boxes – it was developed at YouView and securely connects up to 5 mobile devices.
The YouView App is available free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at: www.itunes.com/appstore
