Did you know that you can watch TV for free on your iPhone?
Freeview, the free-to-air digital TV service, has an iOS app that lets you watch live and on-demand television on your phone.
Launched back in 2019, the app combines catch-up and live TV services from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
It does this by offering all the channels on your average TV alongside shows from catch-up services like iPlayer and My5.
Freeview tuners, found in most televisions, give you access to over 100 channels as soon as you connect an aerial.
This content is available live and on demand from these channels for browsing in one place via the Freeview app.
The software also offers a way to streamline your search for something to watch.
There is a traditional program list showing each channel and what’s currently on.
But the home screen also shows a selection of Watch Now and Watch Later programs from the UK’s biggest broadcasters.
There’s also the Moor standard search bar and filters to narrow down what you’re looking for.
You can try the app for yourself for free by going to the dedicated page Apple App Store.
And that’s not all…
If you don’t like the Freeview app, you can always try Amazon’s free streaming app.
Formerly known as IMDb TV, Freevee offers a collection of hundreds of TV shows and movies available on demand.
The streaming platform works similar to Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+.
However, the app differs from these giants in that you don’t have to pay a subscription fee to use the service.
Instead, Freevee is supported by advertising. Like YouTube, it costs nothing to use, but you do have to watch an ad or two every now and then.
In addition to on-demand content, FreeVee offers more than 60 “Fast Channels” that stream episodes of some shows live.
This part of the app works more like more traditional TV channels and is dedicated to popular series.
Advertisements appear in a manner similar to terrestrial broadcasts and are played continuously at regular intervals.
The platform offers a mediocre selection of classic series featuring Babylon 5, The A-Team, Baywatch, and Magnum PI
Amazon has also pumped money into original content, including Bosch spinoffs, Bosch: Legacy, and Plan B’s High School.
Amazon says it will increase its exclusive Originals range by 70 percent this year.
In the US, you can watch Freevee through a dedicated app available on cell phones, smart TVs, and consoles.
It’s also available in a section of the Prime Video app for smart TVs.
In the UK, you can only watch Freevee on mobile, TV and consoles via the Prime Video app.
