UKTV to launch UKTV play—a new VOD service for all UKTV channels

UKTV have announced that this summer, the multi-channel broadcaster will be launching UKTV Play. This new Video on Demand player will replace the individual players currently representing UKTV brands like 'Dave' and 'Really'

The new service will launch on iOS devices first, followed by a roll out on desktop computers and on YouView. UKTV Play will allow users to create their own channels, will feature 'Staff Picked' shows and will have boxsets of shows like Lizard Lick Towing and Black Ops.

UKTV is home to programmes like Storage Hunters, Crackanory and Raiders of the Lost Art and all will be featured on this new service.

UKTV Chief executive, Darren Childs said “We will curate content by topics and events, so UKTV Play will take away the difficulty that some viewers find with video on demand: choosing what it is they want to watch.“
