When was this logo introduced? The Android app hasn't been updated yet, so I reckon fairly recently. They have also introduced the slogan 'What are you watching?'.

EDIT: It also appears that you can pay £1.99 per month to remove ads from the site and apps.

EDIT 2: Their Facebook profile picture was updated on Friday 28th April. They likely launched the new look then.

Looked at the channel availability page, the UKTV channels have joined Eurosport 1 and 2 in not being available during the free trial.

There are also some strange slated programmes, such as the ITV News London lunchtime bulletin, while they allow the other bulletins.

S4C and BBC Alba listed in the Lifestyle section, rather than "Entertainment", "Factual" or even "More..."

Meanwhile, GOD channel is in "Factual". Shocked

Viceland has been added to the TVPlayer Plus package.

However, slating is prevalent on the channel, with the likes of programmes such as Archer and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia unable to be broadcast on TVPlayer.

EDIT (07/11/2017) - Anime programming, such as the likes of Kill La Kill, can be viewed on TVPlayer

EDIT (03/11/2017) - Slating is almost entirely absent from Viceland. Only Archer is unable to broadcast on Viceland through TVPlayer.

Slightly better than NOW TV which only offers VOD from Viceland.

What’s the reason UKTV channels aren’t on the Apple TV and presumably the app on other systems?


I guess because UKTV don't think it's commercial important enough to pay to develop for?
