EE has announced a new Freeview based TV service which lets viewers watch their favourite programmes on their TVs, mobiles and tablets.
The service provides access to over 70 Freeview channels plus a ‘Replay’ service allowing users to catch-up on shows they’ve missed, and on demand TV and films from Wuaki.tv.
EE’s set top box allows users to record up to four channels at once – more than rival services offer – with recordings stored on a 1TB hard disk drive.
The box can be controlled from a dedicated smartphone and tablet app which can also be used to watch content and push it to the TV screen.
As well as BBC iPlayer and Demand 5, the service includes the BBC’s News and Sports apps plus DailyMotion, YouTube and The Weather Network.
However EE has no deal to include Netflix or NOW TV on their boxes and unlike BT and TalkTalk’s TV services there’s currently no news on additional pay-TV channels coming to the platform.
EE TV is only available to the firm’s home broadband customers which is available from £9.95 plus £15.75 line rental.
Olaf Swantee, CEO, EE, said: “With EE TV, not only can you watch different streams of live and recorded content, on multiple screens simultaneously, but your mobile becomes the remote.
:This gives each viewer the chance to watch, queue and view what they want, when they want. It’s a completely new way to enjoy your favourite programmes, films and internet content.”
