Freeview launches ‘world first’ online TV platform Featured

By

Free-to-air industry body Freeview is claiming a world first with the launch of a new online television platform where viewers can stream live TV or use it for on-demand content needs.

Described as a major milestone for Freeview, the company says FV allows Australian viewers to access live streaming and available Broadcast Video-on-Demand content from FTA networks through one single Web platform on their MAC or PC.

“FV on the web rounds out the suite of Freeview viewing products available in Australia, including Freeview Plus for smart TVs and the Freeview FV app available at the Apple App Store and Google Play,” Freeview said on Wednesday.

The new FV for Web is available across current browsers and, in addition to live streaming and BVOD, the “simple-to-use platform” makes viewing more accessible than ever, with features including:

  • Content discovery across FTA channels and BVOD;
  • A TV guide for all FTA channels;
  • Easy access to your favourite shows; and
  • Program recommendations.

Freeview chief executive Liz Ross says the addition of the new FV website gives Australians more access to free TV content through more platforms than any other country in the world.

“Now more than ever, people want ease and simplicity when it comes to their TV viewing. With FV on the Web now joining the Freeview family, viewers can experience more ways to watch FTA content wherever they choose, across all devices.

“The launch of our FV product on the web is exciting, and Freeview continues to push the boundaries of FTA, constantly evolving our accessible multi-platform experience.”  

FV on the Web provides access to live-streaming and catch up content from more than 20 FTA channels including: ABC, SBS, Seven, Channel 9, 10, 10 Bold, 10 Peach, ABC COMEDY/ABC KIDS, ABC ME, ABC NEWS, SBS Viceland, SBS Food, NITV, 7TWO, 7Mate, 7food network, 7Flix, Racing.com, 9Gem, 9Go! ,9Life, Extra and TVSN.

Freeview says more live channels will be added as they become available.
