Big news iPhone and iPod Touch users – you can now get live TV in the UK on your Apple devices.
Before I explain and you explode in excitement, you need to head straight over to http://iphone.tvcatchup.com to get the service.
The service is in beta so you only get some of the Freeview channels, but all the big ones are up on there.
I’ve just tried it now and it’s absolutely brilliant. The service is apparently optimised for 3G and Wi-Fi, but I’ve just ran it through on Wi-Fi and it streams in harmony. I’m on a 2MB connection here and it loads up really quickly, and hasn’t buffered once in the last 15 minutes. Perfect!
This is another brilliant addition to the TVCatchup service. Perfect if you’re in need of some TV and you aren’t at home.
Great work TVC, I’m really looking forward to the final version, but for now the beta is way more than I need!
A little legal note: Remember you need a UK TV license to watch TV while it is being broadcast. For your own legal safety, make sure your license is up to date before using the service. Thanks!
