EE-TV-boxEE has axed the ability of its TV subscribers to watch their recordings on tablets and smartphones just months after hailing the feature’s launch.

Recordings To Go was launched in March and allowed customers to watch recordings of their favourite shows while out and about.

Speaking at the time, EE’s Director of Home Broadband & TV, Simeon Bird, said: “We’re continually looking at ways to offer new, exciting and innovative TV features to our customers and now we’ve made EE TV truly mobile.

“With Recordings To Go, we’re giving users unique control over how and where they choose to watch TV – whether that’s on a train, bus, tube or even a plane”.

However on Friday the firm emailed users to say the feature would be removed “in the week beginning 6th June”.

According to the email, which was sent in the name of Customer Operations Director Mark Carberry, the decision followed “discussions with content rights-holders”.

The email ends by saying: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience this change might cause. Rest assured, we will continue to innovate and seek new ways to bring you the very best television experience possible.”
