YouView viewers will now be able to catch up on programmes broadcast on free-to-air channels Yesterday and Really following the launch of catch up services for the two channels.
The services, which went live today, allow viewers to access content on both channels through Yesterday and Really branded on demand portals and through YouView’s seven-day scroll back programme guide.
The channels join entertainment channel Dave on the YouView service.
The three free-to-air channels form part of UKTV’s network of 10 channels and today’s launch means YouView customers can access even more of the broadcaster’s content. Shows such as Rescue: Code One, Ghost Adventures, and Got Home Alive on Really and Raiders of the Lost Past, Find My Past and Black Ops on Yesterday are all now accessible via the click of a button.
Dan Fahy, UKTV’s Head of Commercial Development, said: “UKTV is committed to making its bold and innovative programmes and channel brands available to as many viewers as possible. The launch of seven day catch up services for Yesterday and Really on YouView is another important milestone for us in ensuring viewers have ‘anytime, anywhere’ access to our content.”
David Dorans, CFO, YouView said: “We are delighted to welcome even more UKTV content to our line-up of on demand TV content. Easily finding and enjoying the best TV available is at the heart of everything we do at YouView. Adding on demand TV programmes from popular channels Really and Yesterday makes YouView even more compelling for UK consumers.”
