Stream live TV on your tablet with the new TVPlayer

Having cemented its reputation as one of the top free apps in 2014 following a landmark 250,000 downloads within just 28 days, Simplestream’s live television streaming app TVPlayer has launched a new tablet version.
For UK television license holders, TVPlayer offers the opportunity to legally stream live UK channels. With the new tablet version, users are able to set reminders to ensure you never miss your favourite show again.
The channels are conveniently categorized under Entertainment, News, Kids and Desi. As well as the main terrestrial channels (BBC 1 & 2, ITV, Channel 4 & 5), TVPlayer includes music channels such as Kiss, Kerrang!, The Box and Smash Hits, with plans to expand its free-to-air channel line-up to over 100 channels.
Based on research by YouGov, 80% of 18-24 year olds say they would be likely to use a free-to-air mobile television TV service. TVPlayer will provide its channel partners detailed analytics of particular viewing statistics including gender and age amongst others for further demographic research purposes.
So far, the most watched shows on TVPlayer include BBC News, Family Guy, Eastenders, FA Cup Live, Match of the Day and The Simpsons.
Adam Smith, Founder and CEO of the Simplestream Group, says: “We are delighted to have achieved 250,000 downloads in the first few weeks and it is really exciting for us. TVPlayer enjoys excellent relationships with our channel partners who have all shown great forward thinking in embracing the Internet and mobile as a new delivery platform for linear TV. We look forward to working closely with them all to ensure TVPlayer is a success for everyone involved.”
