Re: Freeview play

Don't buy any freeview play device yet...

Demand5 Is not available to all devices and the GUI is developed per hardware maker...

Its new so has BIG issues still...


It was freely added to some panasonic HDTVs that were allready sold  but its not a stable system yet...

Third party support for it is brand new and apps still have to be confirmed...

Freeview play is a HTML5 app platform but its still a BBC and ITV regulated platform which youll have to pay to get apps released on...  

I Do not work for SkyUK or NowTV...

As I No longer live in the UK, I no longer run the NowTv boxes... So am an Ex Community Contributor user
