If your viewing habits have changed over time, and you dont have a need for free-to-air television, there is no need to read on, however if you’ve got an iPhone and an Apple TV, you can mirror the Freeview FV app from your device to the AppleTV. Although the AppleTV currently provides access to most of these apps, from within the Freeview FV App you can also access the dedicated Catch-up services including ABC iView, SBS On Demand, PLUS7, 9Now and tenplay.
