It joins existing iOS iPhone, iPad, and Android phones versions which launched in November.

“We’ve seen a really great response to Freeview FV since the launch last November, as users make the most of the app’s live and catch-up content to stream news and entertainment on their morning commute, or their favourite TV programs in the evening.”

Available channels include: ABC, SBS, Seven, Channel 9, TEN, ONE, Eleven ABC2/ABC KIDS, ABC ME, ABC News 24, SBS VICELAND, Food Network, NITV, 7TWO, 7Mate, 7Flix, Racing.com, 9Gem, 9Go! and 9Life. More live channels will be added as they become available.

  1. The app mostly just links to the content on Ten Play, Plus 7, 9 now, ABC iview and SBS on demand so the app is a waste of time and space on your device. When will all the station’s catch up services be Chromecast compatible and load the content as soon as it starts airing not when it finishes. Ie MKR should be available on Plus 7 at 7:30pm Sydney time not 9pm Sydney time.

      1. Yes the show itself should be available for catchup as soon as it starts to air so if you are out and miss the start you can watch the program without waiting for it to finish airing on live TV. The networks should be embracing online and not ignoring it. No wonder why they are losing viewers left right and centre.

        1. If it’s Live streaming and Catch-Up is avail when it ends that’s a pretty comprehensive offering. I get the issue if it isn’t on Catch-Up for hours later. The whole notion of “Catch-up” is about catching up to something once it is completed, rather than while it is still in play. Foxtel IQ offers what you are seeking for most Foxtel shows.
