UKTV Play launches Android app
James R | On 09, Feb 2015
UKTV Play is now available on Android.
UKTV’s on demand service, which is already available on iOS devices, gives viewers easy access to watch their favourite programmes from UKTV’s popular free-to-air channels.
The free app offers a catalogue of hit shows from the UK’s most watched non-PSB channel, Dave, entertainment channel Really and factual history channel, Yesterday. The line-up means that Android users can enjoy programmes such as Suits, Storage Hunters UK, Crackanory, Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, Forbidden History, Inquisition, The Sixties, Crime Stories, Most Haunted and Ghost Adventures, along with a selection of BBC shows.
Dan Fahy, UKTV’s Director, Commercial and Business Development, comments: “We created UKTV Play so that viewers can watch UKTV’s great shows anytime, anywhere. When we launched UKTV Play on iOS last year, Apple chose to feature it as one of their ‘Best New Apps’, which is testament to its popularity, design and functionality. I feel confident the millions of people with Android devices are going to really love it too.”
The news follows the launch of the service on PC and YouView in November, and this month’s launch of UKTV Play on Virgin On Demand, which offers catch up for all of UKTV’s ten channels.
