You Can Livestream Free-To-Air TV On Your Smartphone Next Month

Freeview is set to release its TV streaming app in November, giving users access to over 15 free-to-air channels on their mobile devices. Here’s what you need to know.

Freeview had teased the release of its Free FV TV mobile app in March but provided few details on how the it would work and when it would be released. At the time the company touted the app, which has been developed for iOS and Android, as a “world-first” in delivering free-to-air TV to mobile devices. Now we finally know when the app will be launched and what it can do.

Freeview FV features include:

  • Live-streaming from all the free-to-air networks
  • Access to all catch-up TV
  • Browse and search free-to-air TV content
  • A free-to-air TV guide
  • A recommendations system

There will be more than 15 free-to-air channels that will be available through Freeview FV and most of them are broadcast in SD. We’re trying to confirm the full list of channels with Freeview and will update this article accordingly.
