Live UK telly now available on your iPhone
Roll up, roll up for today’s red hot Bitterwallet iPhone story. As we continue to await software for the Jesus Phone that will allow you to heal wounds in a couple of seconds and read the minds of dogs, something has come along that will allow us to stop what we’re doing and watch telly instead.
Yes, now lucky iPhone users can watch live telly on their iPhone. Oh yes, just like Sir Clive Sinclair dreamed we’d do thirty years or so ago. It’s thanks to the wizards at TV Catchup – they’ve developed a beta site that gives you a choice of 11 UK Freeview channels to gawp at on your iPhone while they wait for their full-blown app to get full-blown Apple approval.
Naturally, your best bet is to use it via a Wi-fi connection but it’s watchable (if a little jumpy) with an average 3G signal. A few minutes ago, we watched Angela Rippon up a tower and it was exhilarating – like being back in 1969 and seeing the Apollo 11 Moon landing. Later we’re going to watch Countdown and maybe an old episode of Friends. Who knew the future would be THIS exciting??
