Mmm, it's ok if your just wanting to setup recordings to your box. But this lacks the ability to actually watch your recorded shows on the go or from another room in your home from your linked devices. If it had these features, it would be an awesome app! So come on Freesat, let us all be able to record AND watch our shows too.
The TV guide has been updated in a beta version and is much better - it's now based on a moving grid which brings it closer in line with guides from other providers. It still has a few issues though. The guide does not show the record status of a programme - please inlude this. The 'now' button is a good idea, but it's in the wrong place at the bottom of the grid and obscures the final row of the grid. Please put in the 'ribbon' at the top.
Comes alive when paired to a freesat box with PVR. I use a Humax HB-1000S and a USB HDD. The remote functions are good and setting recordings works okay with the proviso you are scheduling something at least 30 mins in the future. It takes time for freesat to send the recording request to the paired box over the internet. New TV guide is a massive improvement.
I want to like this app, but it is slow and unreliable. Also it would be nice if I didn't have to login every time.
The freesatapp is a brilliant piece of kit. I can now plan all the things that I want to record in advance or take them off. Highly recommended. Many thanks James
The recent update to have really sorted out the problems.... it works really well... love the ability to pick programmes from the listings.
We’ve taken your feedback on board and built a new layout for our TV Guide, so you can now seamlessly scroll through the next 7 days.
We’ve done a huge amount of work under the hood as well, improving the stability of Remote Control mode and fixing bugs along the way.
This app works with BBC websites and apps to play BBC content on your device.
