UKTV has launched a “significantly-updated” catch-up and on-demand UKTV Play app on YouView set stop boxes, bringing users a new home screen with recommended shows from across its Dave, Really, Yesterday and Drama channels.
The player also brings together collections of specially curated themes as well as viewer chosen favourites, and an all-new predictive search facility.
UKTV’s Head of Digital Products, Oliver Davies, said: “We’re really pleased to bring our new UKTV Play experience to YouView.
“As with our web, mobile and other set top box apps, viewers now have at-a-glance access to programmes across all the channels, with both hand-picked favourites and personalised recommendations based on what viewers have watched.
“We hope the new ways of discovering programmes such as predictive search, channel filtering, bookmarking and A-Z list, together with the improved responsiveness, will make the service even more of a pleasure to use.”
