On demand TV service YouView is to add popular UKTV channels Dave,?Yesterday?and?Really to its?catch-up services this summer.
The three UKTV channels are currently available to watch online and on iOS devices, but will arrive alongside the likes of BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and 4oD in the on-demand section of the YouView library.
The agreement marks the first time UKTV has offered a catch-up service that is purpose-built for TV.
UKTV's home of witty banter, Dave will be the first of its free-to-air channels to launch a seven day catch-up service in July with programming accessible through a Dave-branded on demand portal and through YouView's scroll back programme guide.
This is the first time that UKTV will provide a service to viewers directly through YouView and hit shows such as Dara O Briain: School of Hard Sums, Ross Noble Freewheeling, Dave Gorman Modern Life is Goodish, Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask, Storage Hunters, Lizard Lick Towing, and Russell Howard's Good News will be available to all YouView customers.
YouView also announced today that their app for Android is out now allowing you to record the latest telly from your phone and tablet - from anywhere in the world.?
The Android app is free, and shows you TV listings for the next 7 days, with a Now and Next episode guide across all channels.?Those with phones and tablets running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean should also be able to make use of TalkBack to set recordings with your voice.
Whether your Android phone or tablet is connected to WiFi or 3G/4G, you'll be able to access the remote record feature.?
