4oD arrives (finally) on new Freesat platform

After a long, long wait, the catch-up TV service from UK broadcaster Channel 4 has finally arrived on the country’s free-to-air satellite platform Freesat.

4oD will only be available on Freesat’s new <free time> devices, and joins the ranks of BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and YouTube, making a large selection of Channel 4 programming available on-demand.

Freesat launched its <free time> devices last September, bringing new features to the platform such as a backwards TV guide that allows viewers to access programmes on-demand via the EPG.

The company plans to add new features such as a remote record app for phones and tablets, as well as new online movie and music services, at some point in the future.
