Freesat Mobile App hits Android

Free satellite TV service Freesat has handed viewers much greater say and sway by launching an Android version of the Freesat App, which transforms phones and tablets into cutting-edge remote controls.

Optimised for the latest Android devices running Android 4.0 and above including phones and tablets from Samsung, Google and Sony, the Freesat App features a TV Guide and the unique Showcase editorial service, which provides daily-curated recommendations on what to watch on both live TV and On Demand. The Android App helps you plan how to watch, record shows remotely and catch up on some of the great free TV shows available on Freesat.

Commenting on the launch, Emma Scott, Managing Director of Freesat, explains: “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. 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.”

The new Android version of the Freesat App is now available for free download from the Google Play store.
