App of the week: TVCatchup
Whilst this isn’t a new app release, it is one of the most loved apps in the office and has recently been made available in the Windows Phone Store.
TVCatchup enables you to watch live UK television on the move, whether you decide to watch it on your laptop, smartphone or tablet (Wi-Fi required). And with over 50 channels (including: BBC One, ITV, Channel 4 and Film4) ranging from news, sports, movies, music, shopping and children’s TV, it’s hard to find something you don’t want to watch.
Just as you’d expect it has an interactive programme guide which shows you what’s coming up, as well as programme titles, synopsis, episode titles and series numbers (shown where available). To make sure you get the most out of the app you can also create your own channel list by pinning channels to the start page to directly watch that channel when selected. But if that wasn’t easy enough you can also use voice commands to start TVCatchup and go straight to a channel or a channel’s programme guide.
Like us you’ll probably find this app will be your best friend when it comes to watching your favourite TV programme and realising somebody else is already hogging the TV. This way everyone wins.
