What is EE TV’s ‘Recordings To Go’ feature, and when will my EE TV be updated? Here’s everything you need to know about EE’s Recordings To Go update, which allows mobile viewing of shows and movies as well as remote recording management.
What is the EE TV Recordings To Go update?
The latest EE TV update brings the very cool ‘Recordings To Go’ feature to your set top box. This allows you to record any kind of content from the 70+ free-to-view channels EE offers, and then immediately transfer them to your phone or tablet via your home WiFi network, to watch on the move.
You can also now manage your recordings remotely through the EE TV app, which will offer the same Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) interface as the set top box. You can set up new recordings and flag them as Recordings To Go, so they’ll transfer to your mobile device when you get home.
