Freeview HD viewers to get timeshifting and iPlayer


by David Allen

As the digital switchover continues around the UK, consumers are having to pick between the digital TV provided by Sky, Freesat or Freeview.

For most consumers the easiest way of getting digital TV is through a Freeview set top box.

These start at around £20 and use the consumer’s own aerial.

However, Freeview has always appeared to be the poor relation when it comes to providing digital TV services.

This has nothing to do with money and cost, and is mainly to do with content.

In order to counter this view, Freeview will be bringing in timeshifting and, later on in the year, it will add HD to its service.

One thing that viewers will be interested in seeing is the BBC’s iPlayer, which will be introduced sometime during 2010.

Now, Freeview has just got a little more interesting.
