Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Help please!!

 

Is it possible to watch the standard channels like BBC1, ITV, Channel4 etc)  LIVE without having a TV aerial?

 

Am I able to watch these on a Amazon Firestick, Kodi box etc etc?

 

Any help appreciated!

Fire Stick has most if not all of what you listed. Other options to add to the list are TV Player, UK TV Play and Quest... In short, you're fairly well covered via the internet but the picture quality can be a bit lacking on some providers.

Don't forget that if you do watch live TV via a streaming app you still need a TV license.

Not since the digital switchover in 2012, and even then it would be pretty flaky

Fire stick - yes.

 

"Kodi box" - if you mean a generic Android box then no.  They're usually "rooted" and the Channel 4 and 5 apps won't work on them for fear of you downloading their content.

So to clarify, I can watch BBC1,2,ITV & Channel 4/5 LIVE on the  amazon fire stick? Are these HD or SD?

Actually, you can watch most basic Freeview channels live on a firestick or an Android box with this free app:

You can also watch it on any internet connected device with a web browser by going here:

TV Catchup used to be another but it doesn't seem to be working today for me:
