Lumiappaday #300: TVCatchup demoed on Nokia Lumia 920 (available in store!) recorded on Nokia Lumia 820

As soon as I saw Chris’ tip, I jumped at the chance to download TVCatchup that we read about a few days ago. The demo was not planned so I’m pretty much discovering the app as I’m recording it. You can watch high quality FreeView live streams over WiFi or watch normal quality through 3G. App is fully supported in either portrait or landscape view.

Video is recorded on Nokia Lumia 820 (White balance set to fluorescent). Video may still be processing.

TVCatchup brings the free experience of watching television to your Windows Phone, allowing you to watch 50 or more live national television channels from within the UK. Mix TV with an interactive programme guide, and you have TVCatchup.

With its familiar television features, TVCatchup is an easy to use service for watching live TV over an internet connection within the UK.

Create your own personal channel list by pinning channels to the start page to directly watch that channel when selected. Use voice commands to start TVCatchup and go straight to a channel or a channel’s programme guide. Try the commands “TV watch Channel 4” or “TV what’s on 5 USA +1”.

With interactive programme guide features, TVCatchup delivers the full television experience. The programme guide allows you to explore what’s coming up. When you have selected what you want to watch, enjoy your programme in full screen.

Additional information about programmes such as programme titles, synopsis, episode titles and series numbers will be shown where available.

Cheers for the heads up, Chris!
