TVCatchup is an invaluable tool (with support for UK channels) for any Windows user who watches television and finds themselves frequently checking catchup listings. The app, available for both Windows RT and Windows 8 devices, enables users to watch over 50 live national television channels with an interactive programme guide for details and times.
As a windows app, the developers have taken full advantage of the live tile functionality, which allows the pinning of individual channels to the start screen for direct access. With the interactive guide, TVCatchup delivers a rich experience with upcoming programmes displayed. The view supports snap view, as well as portrait orientation.
If programme management wasn't enough for power users; titles, synopsis, episodes, series categorisation, casts and credits are all displayed.
You can download TVCatchup from the Windows Store for free.
