SeeSaw, the new online TV service, has launched to the public with over 3,000 hours of content available. The service, which has been in beta testing since January 26th, offers both catch up and archive content from Channel 4, and Five, and BBC Worldwide programming.
The homepage displays a range of programming selected by the SeeSaw editorial team and a “What’s New” section showcases the best new content on the service. The themes on launch day include “Double Acts” from Trinny & Susannah to Adam & Joe and “Weird and Wonderful” with shows such as Bodyshock and Anatomy for Beginners.
There is no display advertising on the site, and only a few ads within the programmes.
Pierre-Jean Sebert, CEO SeeSaw commented: “This is a landmark moment for TV fans across the UK, who can now enjoy their favourite shows on one platform.
“We have been hard at work, developing a user-friendly interface and selecting a diverse range of high quality programming but this is just the beginning. We have listened carefully to our beta testers and, over the coming months, will be implementing many of their suggestions and adding a raft of high quality British and international content. Everyone working on the service is committed to making SeeSaw a great place to watch TV.”
SeeSaw aims to offer a further 2,000 hours of programming on the service for the pay launch, which will take place in Q2 2010.
