We have developed the BBC Media Player app to improve video streaming playback on Android devices. You will need to install this separately from the Google Play marketplace.
To make installation of the BBC Media Player as easy as possible, BBC iPlayer will prompt you to install it when you first play a streamed programme.
Here's a list of devices that are currently able to receive video downloads: http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/mobile_tablet/android_downloads_device
The BBC iPlayer app uses standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The permissions the BBC iPlayer Android app asks to use are:
Read phone status and identity – allows us to securely link downloads to your device, so they cannot be copied to another.
Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage – allows the app to save images, metadata and downloads.
Full network access- allows the app to access the internet.
View network connections - Allows the app to access details about network connectivity i.e. whether the device is on Wi-Fi or 3G/4G.
Prevent phone from sleeping – enables downloads to be performed in the background.
Test access to protected storage – allows the app to check if there is space on your device to download programmes.
We support a wide range of devices. However, we are aware that some phones and tablets currently experience problems playing 4oD, and will address this as soon as possible.
Please note – Due to Channel 4’s agreements with programme owners, rooted devices are not supported.
- Watch an ever-expanding collection of programmes from Channel 4, E4 and More4
- Huge 30-day catch-up window
- Free box sets of classic Channel 4 shows
- Streaming accessible over WiFi
- Download programmes over WiFi in UK and Ireland to watch offline or abroad
4oD is a free app, and our content is free to watch because we are a commercially funded public service broadcaster. As a publicly owned, not-for-profit organisation, the revenue we make from advertising doesn’t go to shareholders; it goes back into making more programmes.
Outputting from a device to a TV requires specific rights, which we don't currently have for all of our programmes. As our rights come up for renewal this is something we are seeking to address wherever possible.
Message from Channel 4:
Once you have downloaded this application, continue to use BBC iPlayer or the BBC Sport website on your Android device as normal. Whenever you play any video or audio the BBC Media Player will launch and handle playback of the content.
You may notice that when you install the app it asks you for permission to access your phone's network communication, phone calls, and system tools.
These are standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The 3 permissions the BBC Media Player app asks to use are:
• Network Communication - full internet access.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with access to the internet so it can play programmes.
• Phone Calls - read phone state and identity.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with phone communication status and notifies the application if the phone rings or a phone call is in progress. We only use this permission to ensure that the BBC Media Player pauses if you receive a phone call and temporarily reduces its audio when you receive a txt message while watching a programme. The BBC Media Player app does not access or store any personal information, phone numbers or IMEI numbers.
• System tools - preventing phone from sleeping, retrieve running applications.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with the ability to prevent the phone going to sleep when you are watching a programme.
With its familiar television features, TVCatchup is an easy to use service for watching live TV on the move over an internet connection.
The application brings television to your Android device and enables you to watch live TV on the move. TVCatchup is available to people located within the UK that have a valid UK TV Licence.

Why are we in Beta?
This new App is initially being released as a Beta App. This is due to a bug outside of NOWTV’s control with the Android native players on certain devices, which potentially can cause video freezes. We are working closely with device manufacturers and Google to resolve this.
NOW TV Beta is compatible with the many Android tablets that are 7” or larger and running Android 4.0 or later. If you have an Android Phone running anything below 4.0, the “NOWTV” app in the Google Play Store, is available on selected Android Phones with older OS versions. (Please note, this older version of our App does not support Tablets)
For a full list of supported devices, please visit nowtv.com
How do I start?
All you need to start enjoying NOWTV Beta is a NOWTV iD username and password and an active Sky Movies Month Pass, Entertainment Month Pass or Sky Sports Day Pass. You can setup an account and purchase a Pass at nowtv.com.
Mobile network and/or Wi-Fi charges apply.
Contact your Network Operator for further information.
Now TV / BSkyB does not supported video playback on rooted Android Devices.
This is because if a device is identified as being “rooted”, we can’t guarantee to our content partners’ satisfaction that the programmes and movies can be protected from copying or illegal distribution.
For those that aren’t aware, rooting is a process where the user gets complete control over the Android operating system files and configuration. Some devices may be identified as ‘rooted’ if the manufacturer has enabled root access by default.
Additional information: Available to residential customers in the UK only. Not all programmes available on live channels or catch up. Further terms apply.
