    NO DISCUSSION PLEASE. There's other threads for that. Thank you. :thumbup:


    I thought it might be useful to have a thread devoted to listing the availability of LIVE & FREE UK TV channels available to stream legally via Official apps.


    Not everyone knows what channels are available, or where and until there's a unified Freeview or Freesat app or Official IP-streaming platform individual apps is the way to go. For free anyway.


    Note:

    - Registering for an account is often required, even for free content.

    - Availability may differ depending on what platform the app is on or postcode.

    • Official Post

    Although not a app, but the Ch5 family of channels are available live on firesticks.

    If my post is in this colour, it is a moderator decision. Please abide by it.

  • The Sky News App allows the streaming of the Live UK version of the channel.


    The NHK World Japan App allows the streaming of the Live channel, with the option of AI-translated subtitles, if you don't speak English, in 3 other languages.


    Update

    STV Player also allows the streaming of STV+1 in Scotland. There is no logo to identify but it's the tile to the right of the live STV stream.

  • All4 new information


    Channel 4 are supporting multiple versions of their TV Streaming Stick/Box App. Have now seen newer hardware using same platform and it has got Live TV (and updated colour scheme/branding, so that's the clue to which version you have). So you'll be provided whichever version your device is capable of.
