TV Everywhere apps still building an audience

Thursday 19 March 2015 | 15:55 CET | Author: Wiebe Hotte | Background
More and more TV providers and broadcasters are introducing apps for customers to watch live TV. Access is often free with a subscription to a TV and internet package, allowing customers to watch the same channels on a smartphone or tablet as they receive at home on the TV. According to research by Telecompaper in December 2014, around a third of TV subscribers actually use these apps.
