If you peruse your controller or voice control your way to the App Marketplace on the dashboard today you will notice that both catch up tv app’s from Channel 4 and Channel 5 in the UK are available to install.
The 4oD app on Xbox LIVE offers Xbox 360 gold subscribers the opportunity to catch up on programmes broadcast in the last 30 days on Channel 4 or one of its sister channels. In addition, the 4oD app is offering access to programming from across Channel 4’s 29 year history – from hit comedy such The Inbetweeners to drama series like Misfits and Shameless. More exciting is that the first series of Made in Chelsea is on it too !!
Demand 5 catch-up service provides viewers with access to a significant percentage of Channel 5’s peaktime schedule and much of its hit acquired content, such as Alphas, CSI and Neighbours.
The app is extended with a raft of original programming, including Fifth Gear, The Gadget Show, The Hotel Inspector and Paul Merton’s Adventures. Channel 5 is working tirelessly with production companies and rights holders to expand the content offering of Channel 5, 5* and 5USA on the service.
Further app’s will be released in due course, notably the BBC app is expected in January for BBC TV catch up programming. Hopefully ITV take note and follow pursuit!
