Imagine a television with a tuner that can pick up every live TV channel in the world. Well, we’re not quite there yet… but we’ve found a pretty cool start to it on the Apple TV where you can flip through live channels of your choice.
According to the Wall Street Journal, America’s catch-up and on-demand aggregation service Hulu will soon be offering live streams of broadcast & basic cable TV including ABC, FOX, FX, ESPN and Disney alongside their regular SVOD content.
Less than 48 hours after AT&T announced their upcoming DirecTV Now service, the race for American domination in online linear television ramps up an extra gear, with both Sling TV and PlayStation Vue announcing additional channels and incentives to hook in new customers. Live TV may still have some kick left in it after all.
If I told you that you could have a fully responsive, HD set-top box that will stream free UK catch-up content such as the BBC’s iPayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 for only £15 and no monthly fees, would you believe me? Granted, there are a few catches but underneath it all is possibly the best deal in IPTV. If you want a sofa-friendly way to watch UK content on your television, but don’t want to spend a lot of money – then this could very well be the box for you!
If you’re looking for a great way to watch live and catch-up Irish television via the Internet, iBox.ie has one of the best options available. Combine this with a good Smart DNS service, and you could possibly have all the Irish TV you need wherever you are in the world!
Although Channel 4 is historically considered the third terrestrial television network in the UK after the BBC and ITV, it would come in many people’s minds a close second after the national public broadcaster.
