freesat android app

The Freesat App has launched on Android, so you can now manage your TV viewing from your Google-powered mobile phone or tablet.

The free app turns your mobile device into a remote control, letting you play, fast forward, rewind and change channel.

It also lets you see seven days of TV listings for more than 200 free TV and radio channels, record on the go, see recommended TV shows (both live and on-demand), and search the listings to find what you want.

Freesat launched an app for iOS devices earlier this year, but this one has incorporated user feedback.

"When we launched the Freesat iOS App earlier this year, our focus was to deliver an experience that would be a game changer for free TV viewers and its popularity surpassed our expectations," Emma Scott, Freesat's managing director, said in a statement.

"Following feedback from some of the over 200,000 people who downloaded the Freesat app, we have worked hard to match that success with an app optimised for the Android market."

Freesat estimates that about 40 per cent of its customers use Android phones and tablets, so this app will be most welcome for them.

The Freesat Mobile App is available now for all devices that run Android Ice Cream Sandwich or later.
