UKTV Play brings Dave and the gang to Android

Mobile catch up and on-demand service UKTV Play is now available on Android devices. 

Content from Dave, Really and Yesterday is now available to stream on a range of Android phones and tablets, giving you access to Storage Hunters UK, Crackanory, Most Haunted and more on the move. 

The app, which is essentially iPlayer for UKTV’s free channels, is also available on iOS, YouView, Virgin Media TiVo and online (PC, Mac, Flash Player required). 

Dan Fahy, UKTV’s director of commercial and business development, said: “We created UKTV Play so that viewers can watch UKTV’s great shows anytime, anywhere. When we launched UKTV Play on iOS last year, Apple chose to feature it as one of their ‘Best New Apps’, which is testament to its popularity, design and functionality. I feel confident the millions of people with Android devices are going to really love it too.”

Though UKTV Play will work on devices running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and upwards, UKTV says that it’s optimised for devices running 4.3 and above. 

YouView added Dave on Demand, Yesterday and Really as separate catch-up apps in 2013, before they were all gathered together under the UKTV Play banner in 2014. 

Virgin Media customers can access every UKTV channel, including Alibi, Good Food and GOLD, depending on their subscription. 

Sky TV customers can also get Dave, Gold and Watch on the move via the Sky Go app.
