New App and Channels for Freesat

Freesat, the UK free-to-air satellite platform has launched its successful iOS viewing manager app for Android phones and tablets. The Freesat app features a full TV guide with ‘Showcase’ recommendations on what to watch on both broadcast and catch-up TV, and, for Freesat Freetime box owners, acts as a remote control and enables programmes to be recorded from anywhere in the UK.

Two new channels have also started on the Freesat platform. True Drama (Freesat channel 153) features British and US films and series, and Tiny Pop+1 (channel 609) is a delayed version of the entertainment channel for 3-7-year olds.

Freesat broadcasts unencrypted from the ASTRA 28.2°E satellite position.
