Freesat has launched a companion app to its Freetime set top box that enables iOS users to control their TV watching from their sofa, or even when they’re out and about.
Once paired with a set top box, the Free App enables users to browse both On Demand options, as well as 190 live channels, offering one-swipe functionality to play the content on their TV. Users can also tap to record something to watch later.
The Freesat app, currently only compatible with iOS6 and 7 devices, has been built by Nice Agency, who will make it available to more devices over time. The app can also be used by non-Freesat set top box owners as an electronic TV guide.
