Antonia Barton, general manager, BT TV product, said: “The new BT TV app is much better all round – it is much easier to use and gives you great TV shows to enjoy when you’re out and about.

“The new kids’ section is great for children, as they can find their favourite shows within a dedicated section of the app.

“Plus there’s so much more content, whether you’re looking for something like Britain’s Next Top Model from Lifetime on Subscription Catch Up or you want to watch a classic comedy on UKTV’s GOLD channel.”
