Freesat has added 4 on Demand (4oD) to its catch-up TV offering, bringing viewers 30 days of catch-up TV and a wealth of shows from Channel 4’s archive.
4oD joins BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and You Tube on the Freesat Free Time service – Freesat's mix of on-demand apps and live TV, seen by many as a response to YouView.
Freesat Free Time is also the first UK TV platform to host the HTML 5 version of 4OD.
As well as 4OD, Freesat Freetime has a new Showcase section, allowing viewers to watch programmes recommended by the Freesat team.
Freesat is also dropping hints of a new music and film service as well as a Free Time app, promising remote record for smartphones and tables.
The YouView Android app launched yesterday, joining the iOS app in bringing remote record to the YouView experience.
