Arrow Watch LIVE TV? UK? An App or Website?

Hi,

For the iPhone, you can go to...

iphone.tvcatchup.com

And this allows you to watch live TV for free, in the UK. It works fairly well.

So I was wondering, is there anything that allows me to watch LIVE TV? Such as BBC 1 - 4, or ITV and E4 etc?

An App or a similar website?

Thanks...

Erm i think the app "beebplayer" allows you to watch online. Not 100% though.

Beebplayer definitely lets you watch live BBC channels, and you can listen to the Beeb's radio offerings live too, as well as watching anything that's available on iPlayer. It's a great app.

I didn't look into it too deeply, since I'd have needed to sign up for an account, but can you set your user agent to iPhone (using a browser like Dolphin HD) and hit iphone.tvcatchup.com that way?

I'm a UK Desire user (2.1) and have found Yamgo the best solution so far:

Watch live mobile TV channels

Enjoy!

Furthermore, the mods on tvcatchup forums have a pretty crappy attitude imo.

Check out these two threads:

Competition - TVCatchup Forums

Can I get TVC on Android??? - Page 6 - TVCatchup Forums
