There are currently 12 channels available for testing purposes. The streams are optimsed to work on both 3G and WiFi, although it is suggested that you use WiFi.

Please remember an Uk Tv licence is needed for viweing however tvcatchup dont police this.

i just tried this on my daughters 2nd gen ipod touch but its not working, it take me to the right page but says she needs flash but when she clicks that it says something along the lines of you cannot install this on this ipod ? anyone any ideas ? ta

Excellent find, was able to watch a bit of E4 over 3G without any problems.

Truly awesome prog, rep+heat to the OP!
I have it playing on my 2nd gen ipod touch with a perfect audio and video stream.
Would be great for tv if you were wanna watch something in bed.
My only worry is it says beta, hope they dont charge for it soon.
Would be nice to have it launch as an ap on the ipod.
I take it as long as you have a tv licence it's all above board?

you are on the wrong page. The iphone page shows the word **Beta** in red. There is then a drop down channel menu. :thumbsup:
#11
Thanks KVEE, got the right page now but its saying "Safari cannot download this file" BOO :x
#12
well its a brilliant site, they have more channels if you view via the webplayer.
Dont worry mate i know for a fact they wont start to charge, they use the short adverts before the channel starts to cover costs.
All i can say is if anyone have any problems sign upto the forum and post it there, someone will to you in seconds :D

Thanks so much for posting this, I've been looking for a TV Catchup application on the app store on a regular basis.

TV Catchup rocks and it's worth pointing out the main site works very well on the PS3 too, so well in fact I've sacked off my ariel and use it as my main method of watching TV in the bedroom.

For anyone who hasn't used the service, the name's a little bit misleading as you don't watch pre-recorded programs but live TV channels, which in my opinion is even better.

been following these guys for a while, a great website, i can use it at work. there is also a plug to use on PLEX. Class piece of software, well done to those guys, should be easy to port onto other devices soon as well...

For all those who are getting the "Safari could not download the file" problem there are 2 things you have to do.

1. Have iPhone OS 3.0 or higher installed.
2. Go to Setting > Safari and set Plug-Ins to on.

If you still have problems, post here, I'll try my best to help out.
#23
I can't find the App for this on iTunes. Is there one?

Or is it just a webpage to open in Safari on the iPhone?
#24
Very clear picture - I cant believe i didnt know about this sooner! Excellent excellent excellent - My Iphone is now complete!!!! lol Thanks so much
#25
I'd only use this if you're on unlimited internet on O2 :thumbsup:
I unlocked my iPhone onto Orange, get 500MB a month internet usage and that would be eaten up in no time - just posted on the TVC forum and it streams at 350kb/s. :)

Yeh getting the same problem. (worked earlier).
Was wondering why it worked on my ipod touch, now i know i have 3.01 sofware, paid £5.99 for it. (free dload for iphone users).
Also if you click the + sign while on your touch/iphone when your on the site and choose add to home screen it will be there like an app to launch straight away.
This is NOT an app as such, so you will not find it on the itunes store.
Cheers again.

I'm also having this issue, through a computer the stream works fine though. Hmm.
#37
Has anyone been able to get any channels past e4 music? on web you can get dave sky sports news etc but can't on my iphone? thanks mj
#38
its at a beta stage at the moment thats why not all channels are up yet, am sure it wont be too long before all the channels are added. :D
#39
Cheers for the post OP, haven't checked the TVC forums for a while so would have missed this. They did submit an app to the app store a while back but has yet to be approved, although maybe the apperance of this web page means it was turned down
#40
can anyone help, when I try and use it it says flash player required and when I try and download the flash player it says not available on this device
