CBS Catch-Up coming to Freeview Play


They've been spotted testing  - now the CBS AMC UK Channel Partnership has confirmed new on-demand players are launching on Freeview Play.

Catch-up content from their Freeview channels will be available from 6th December 2018. There will be a catch-up portal for the CBS channels and a separate one for the Horror Channel - known as 'Horror Bites'.

a516digital spotted these players testing in October, briefly appearing in the Freeview Play interface.

Freeview Play is the hybrid TV service from Freeview, which combines regular terrestrial television channels with on-demand and catch-up content, including a roll-back TV guide.

Simon Hunt, Strategy Director for Freeview Play commented
“We’re committed to evolving and improving Freeview Play, so to be announcing the launch of not one, but two new catch up players is really something to shout about. As the platform continues to grow and become the new normal, we hope that the CBS AMC UK Channels Partnership, along with our other partners continue to reap the rewards of its success with audiences across the country.”
