Now we can watch free to air TV on our browsers thanks to the new world-first Freeview FV platform which has just been released.
Freeview has launched FV on the web to stream live TV and on demand content on their Mac or PC.
Australians can use any current browser to access the free FV website.
The new easy-to-use platform allows viewers to discover new content on more than 20 free to air channels as well as access a comprehensive TV guide.
With the addition of the new FV website, more Australians will be able access to free TV content through more platforms than any other country in the world.
“Aussies have completely free access to more than 10,000 programs with Freeview,” Freeview CEO Liz Ross says.
“There are no subscription fees, it’s available wherever you are, on whichever device you’re on and at whatever time you want to watch TV.
“We’ve designed these products to fit in with people’s lives. If you like a certain program, we’ll help you find others like it.
“Freeview is all about making it easy to watch some of the best TV content in the world, for free.”
From the first half of 2017 to the first half of 2018 there has been a 76 per cent increase in Broadcast Video on Demand (BVOD).
The Freeview web platform now sits beside the Freeview Plus app for Smart TVs and the Freeview mobile app for iOS and Android.
FV on the web provides access to live-streaming and on-demand content from more than 20 FTA channels including: ABC, SBS, Seven, Channel 9, 10, 10 Bold, 10 Peach, ABC COMEDY/ABC KIDS, ABC ME, ABC NEWS, SBS Viceland, SBS Food, NITV, 7TWO, 7Mate, 7food network, 7Flix, Racing.com, 9Gem, 9Go! ,9Life, Extra and TVSN.
And more live channels will be added as they become available.
