Now TV Box (black) - Live Freeview TV app - is there one?

13
Found 7th May 2016
Maybe I imagined it but I seem to remember seeing a comment in a post here recently that there is an app that can be loaded to the Now TV box that allows live TV (Freeview) as opposed to the Live Sky TV built into the Now TV ....... is there such an app

I know only one app can be added to these boxes and Plex is one of them but I am sure I have seen a Freeview app too

any hints / links please

let me know how you get on ....quote from link

UPDATE: At present changes made by TVPlayer have blocked the streams from loading.
However I’ve created an alternative app using FilmOn feeds.
Latest Version: FilmOn 1.1.7 Sideloadable ZIP / Roku Private Channel

does it work now ?

thanks

What's the quality of the pic like? Sd or hd? Grainy/fuzxy/pixilated?
Looks like sd to me - not amazing but I'm just using for a spare tv where I can't be bothered to run a cable to
Thanks for this. I may put it on later.
