I just have an HD antenna, although I did just sign up for something called Fuji Live, which is a streaming service to get TV from Japan for my wife since she's been feeling pretty home sick lately.

It's a bit pricey though at $28/month (I mean given she doesn't watch TV very often), but you get 85 channels and can view shows from up to two weeks ago...

There's loads of Japanese weirdness, but I've yet to find the late night anime. :x

Like WTF this airs at 3:30PM...

I know about that, I was just curious to see how late some of this stuff is aired. I remember hearing it's all put up mostly after midnight and most people just PVR it.

There's a free app called TVCatchup which is essentially streaming all the Freeview channels.

Might be worth giving a look.


There is also TV Player which does the same but for £6 I think gets you comedy central, a bunch of kids TV and depending on the platform you are on cloud record to add a little extra

TVCatchup used to be great way back in the day - I used to watch live TV on my iPhone streaming over 3G way back in 2009, but their servers seem totally crap for the last few years.

I've been using Mobdro on Android to stream freeview channels recently - it works pretty reliably and has a half decent UI so I would recommend it.

I only really use Freeview for watching sport these days, our TV watching is almost exclusively streaming these days - mostly Netflix but with a smattering of Prime and High Seas content as well.
