Freeview to launch “catch-up” on-demand service

Freeview is to launch a “catch-up” service for Freeview Playback and PVR owners. The “push” on-demand service will act in exactly the same way as Top Up TV Anytime, sending pre-selected programming to user’s boxes for them to watch at their leisure. More details are set to be revealed in January. It is estimated that 225,000 Freeview Playback boxes have been sold since the launch of the brand in April.
