Saorview, Ireland’s free digital television service, has launched a new mobile app. The free app is designed as a companion to Saorview’s TV service and allows Saorview viewers to plan their viewing.
The app features a 7-day programme guide, a new recommendations service called Spotlight, and links to on demand players. Viewers can
use the Saorview app to search for specific programmes on TV and radio, and to set reminders for their chosen programmes or series.
This is the first phase of the app. Later in the year additional features will be enabled including a backwards guide with deep linking to on demand programmes. Then, with the launch of Saorview Connect, users will be able to manage their recordings with the Saorview app and use the app as a remote control for their Saorview Connect box.
Saorview is supporting the launch of the Saorview app with social media and TV campaigns running through August and September.
