TVCatchup is a web based TV streaming service that enables you to watch live TV from most of the UK terrestrial channels. They have apps for Android and iOS and today they have launched a version for Windows Phone. The app brings over 50 live TV channels to Windows Phone and has programme information as well as voice control.

I have just given the app a spin and it works very well, even over a 3G connection. The app is free from the Windows Phone Store.


TVCatchup brings the free experience of watching television to your Windows Phone, allowing you to watch 50 or more live national television channels from within the UK. Mix TV with an interactive programme guide, and you have TVCatchup.

With its familiar television features, TVCatchup is an easy to use service for watching live TV over an internet connection within the UK.

Create your own personal channel list by pinning channels to the start page to directly watch that channel when selected. Use voice commands to start TVCatchup and go straight to a channel or a channel’s programme guide. Try the commands “TV watch Channel 4” or “TV what’s on 5 USA +1”.

With interactive programme guide features, TVCatchup delivers the full television experience. The programme guide allows you to explore what’s coming up. When you have selected what you want to watch, enjoy your programme in full screen.

Additional information about programmes such as programme titles, synopsis, episode titles and series numbers will be shown where available
