The android market has got a new catch-up TV app from the UK’s largest commercial TV broadcaster, ITV. The ITV Player app can be downloaded now from the android market for free.
The app runs on android 2.2 and above, that is both tablets and smartphones. Users can watch seven day catchup for the whole selection of ITV channels, ITV1, ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4.
Viewers can search for shows using the thumbable programme guide, search via channel, or use the search feature. And like iPlayer, it has a recommended section as well.
The streaming quality is good, but not quite as good as aformentioned iPlayer on android, and it only works via Wi-Fi, but other than that it’s a great addition for android TV lovers.
The ITV Player app needs Adobe Air to run and you will be promted to download on first run. The app is only available for UK viewers and an iOS version is coming later this year.
