Freeview HD TV Guide app on Android, iPad

October 19, 2011

Freeview, the UK’s digital terrestrial television platform, has confirmed that the Freeview HD TV Guide App has expanded to Android devices and Apple’s iPad.

The free app, launched for the iPhone last year, offers instant access to the platform’s programming guide, including all standard and high definition channels.

New features include a full grid view of the TV guide, giving access to the Freeview channels in an “interactive timeline”, alongside ‘top picks’ of the best shows each day.

Users can set their preferences for TV programming, allowing the app to make recommendations, while a new trending feature shows what content is most talked about on Twitter.

The app also downloads content so that users can watch TV when they don’t have a signal.
