Seen it? See it again via See Saw
All aboard the See Saw, as we while away endless hours watching classic telly online instead of working!
See Saw is the name of a new iPlayer-style video-on-demand website that has launched officially today. ITV aren’t involved so it’s mostly chock full of Channel 4 and Five shows, so there’s a huge glut of cheap-to-make lifestyle shows about clothes, gardens and houses, but there’s also lots of classic comedy and drama as well for the grown-ups.
However, unlike the mighty iPlayer, downloading shows to watch at your leisure is not an option, you can’t watch it via other platforms such as games consoles and cable and there’s just enough ads knocking around for it to be slightly frustrating.
There are a few episodes of shows that have only just broadcast (Neighbours, Hollyoaks, the increasingly-shite Shamleless) but the majority of shows on See Saw are archived, something which iPlayer doesn’t do.
See Saw’s overlords have said they expect to add a further 2,000 hours of content by the end of June, when they plan to start charging for some programming, which is likely to be mostly shows from the US of America. Fingers crossed for every ever episode of Bewitched cropping up there sooner or later.
In the meantime, we’re going to crack on with all 106 episodes of Time Team. See you in a month.
