Freesat Free Time adds 4oD to catch-up TV

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.
