Hi, is the "UKTV Play" app (an on-demand video app for Freeview UK channels like Dave,etc) available on any Samsung TVs in the UK? If so, which ones? If not, why not? Will it arrive in the future? At what date?

 

It's part of "Freeview Play", as supported by Panasonic, LG, JVC, Hisense, Bush and Finlux.

Hi all I have ue32f4500 from 2014 I've updated to latest software but still no uktv play. Is there anyway this can be manually installed? Or side loaded? 

Would love to watch old "countdown to murder" on this!!

As far as I know it's currently their Tizen smart based TVs from 2016 onwards, but that may change in the future.

I've had issues like that in the past with catch up apps, 4OD used to freeze at ads and force me to restart the Tv and go through all the ads all over again, I player used to freeze if you paused it for too long, they stoped after a while, I guess just got developed out but bloody anoying.

We have the UK TV Play app but the font size of the text is very small, almost too small to read.

I have TV play via Sky, however checked out the app and the font really is quite small  (though manageable for me)and a bit of a contrast to other apps.  There is not a setting increase the size  via Tv,   Samsung do have accessibility options but this is for on screen menus and does not affect the app, I have the latest firmware and have tried resets but it does not make a difference.  Seems more of a developer issue and have contacted Uk Tv Play, however at the  moment they have just said they will pass on my feedback.

Does downloading and installing the new UKTVPlay app require a Samsung account?

No, just install it like any other app (iPlayer, ITV Player etc). It's not a Samsung produced app.

I downloaded uktv play onto my Samsung galaxy tab 6 but every time I try to open it it won't open. I've  tried uninstalling it and then re installing it but it still doesn't work anyone any ideas?
