There was a time when you needed an aerial to view live TV, but now, you can easily get access to a huge range of TV content directly on your smartphone. Listed below are some of the ways you can watch live TV online, so you don’t miss out on your favorite soccer games:
If you have access to a standard TV guide and are looking for a one-stop destination for all TV channels, follow this method:
If you already have subscribed to a premium TV package (BT, Virgin, or Sky), these providers have their own apps that give you access to the channels that you’re already paying for in your package. They include VOD (video-on-demand) and real-time TV content. These apps are:
– Sky GO for Android and iOS
– Virgin TV GO for Android and iOS
– BT TV for Android and iOS
However, if you don’t pay for your TV and want an app that covers several channels, check out these two options:
Freeview mobile app for Android and iOS
Freeview has developed an app that operates as a well-laid out TV guide. It lets you know what’s on, and it also displays on-demand content across all the big distributors.
You can easily choose the content you want to watch and the app will open up the correct app on your mobile device to play the content for you. Please note that this is like a hub for many other individual apps, and is great for viewing what’s on TV.
TVplayer for Android and iOS
The TVplayer app provides you access to live TV from many distribution channels. Unlike the Freeview app, this app allows you to directly watch TV on the app, which will also help you save memory on your smartphone (since you don’t have to download multiple apps). However, remember that the free version of this app only includes live TV. if you’re looking for VOD content, you’ll have to upgrade to the paid version.
