TVCatchup has been a favorite among UK iPhone owners for many a year, offering a free way to watch domestic television on the go. Sadly, the TV providers haven't all been fans of the service, and following legal proceedings some changes are now to be made to the TVCatchup offering.
As a result, some channels have now been removed completely from the mobile apps, while offering a redirect to the broadcasters own services via the web client. Other channels such as ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 are no longer available to watch via the mobile apps using a cellular connection. It wouldn't be so much of a pain if the providers own apps were better than they are right now.
TVCatchup does say that additional content, including HQ channels will be added going forward, but it's a sad piece of news for those of us – myself included – that make regular use of the service. How does this affect your own usage?
