freeviewFreeview has launched a new application on Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch designed to help consumers plan their TV viewing while on the move.
The Freeview iPhone app offers instant access to the digital terrestrial television platform’s programming guide, including all 50 standard definition channels.
However, the guide also includes BBC HD listings for anyone with Freeview HD viewing equipment. ITV1 HD and Channel 4 HD information will follow shortly.

Available features on the app include a ‘now and next’ function, along with a ‘Top 10’ channel list for flagging up the most popular programming.
All channels can be reordered into favourites or customised to individual regional variations. Users can also filter listings by category or follow viewing suggestions offered by Freeview’s official Twitter feed.
“As Freeview HD rolls-out across the UK, viewers can plan their HD viewing wherever they are with our new Freeview HD TV guide app,” said Freeview marketing communications director Tim Hunt.
“The launch of this smart app will allow users to cut a quicker path to their favourite channels and get the most out of planning their TV viewing.”
