TVPlayer Free: Everything you need to know (Updated 2022)

TVPlayer is a UK-based live streaming service that offers free-to-air and premium channels to its subscribers. You can either watch the network for free or pay for the premium and HD streaming experience. If you choose to watch the network for free, you may be inclined towards some of the more well-known streaming services with major studios, but if you want a traditional British TV experience on your device at a reasonable cost, TVPlayer can certainly get the job done.

With our hectic lifestyle, it is really challenging to fit our favorite shows in our schedule. Most of us don't have time work but that doesn't stop us from streaming Netflix in leisure time. However, the luxury of Netflix is not something everybody can afford. All of us have a different approach when it comes to consuming premium content. The only thing that's for sure is that the pattern of consuming content is changing. A majority of Americans watch television through cable or satellite networks, with the number declining from 96%. The rise of streaming services and watching television on-the-go has come at the expense of a traditional TV experience.

TVPlayer, although nowhere near Netflix or Prime Video?s capability, still exists because of its great demand on the internet.

What is TVPlayer?

TVPlayer is a live streaming service that provides users access to content streams from their smartphones, tablets, or laptops. This service offers access to 80+ channels, of which 29 are premium channels. The most appealing part about TVPlayer is that it offers free streaming of 70% of its content - including channels such as Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Capital TV. Another aspect that I like about this service is that you get all the channels in one place. For instance, you can access BBC iPlayer which just shows BBC channels for £5.99 along with other channels. Additionally, you can make use of the on-demand service which has premium service TV channels with content available from the past one month.

History

TVPlayer began its journey back in December 2013. It was launched as an internet-based TV subscription service in the UK and it is amongst the most beloved services. It streams live TV across a wide range of devices and features the UK's favorite free-to-air channels along with some premium channels.

Why should you stream on TVPlayer?

There is a great abundance of content on TVPlayer. You can access more than eighty channels on premium services. You also get live tv and on-demand content from channels such as BBC, ITV, Discovery, Comedy Central, and Nickelodeon to name a few. In terms of price, it is amongst the best services out there, only being surpassed by Hulu in my opinion.

Compatibility is key

TVPlayer offers a variety of app options so that viewers can enjoy the service on their favorite devices. The app is available for Android, iOS, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Xbox. This makes it easy for viewers to watch their favorite shows wherever they are.

DVR Capabilities

TVPlayer allows you to record live TV so that you never miss a show. You can use the recording feature to save some of the priceless moments that you can view later. For example, you wouldn't need to wait for Ricky Gervais' crazy monologue or Dave Chapelle's acceptance speech for over two days when you have a live TV recording feature.

Affordable Plans

One of the many reasons why I fell in love with TVPlayer is because it is budget-friendly. There are plenty of streaming services charging an unreal amount of money. If you thought that was worse, think about these free streaming websites which stream pirated content and even charge $30/per month. Compared to TVPlayer's plan and pricing, you feel like subscribing to the network.

Design

Aesthetically, TVPlayer's homepage is quite appealing. Sure, it doesn't have the most distinctive layout but they have got the basics right. The website is developed well and it is fairly easy to navigate. The white background with a light grey element really helps the black and red text to stand out.

Distinctive Color Combination

Streaming services with dark websites have been found in previous reviews. TVPlayer's white and grey color combination comes as a breath of fresh air because it is different from the other streaming services. Another aspect I love the most about TVPlayer is that they do not bombard you with daily newsletters when you sign up for the service.

Clean Hero Section

Beneath it, you see the devices that are compatible with the network. The main slider banner has three supporting texts right below it. These three details pertain to channels, pricing, and devices. As you scroll down, you see tiny logos of all the channels on the network in three rows. As you scroll further, there's another banner with a CTA ?Try For Free?. Beneath it, you see the devices that are compatible with the network.

Well-Defined Categories

If you're looking for on-demand content, you can head to the ?On-Demand? tab. The TV Guide tab will show all the currently airing primetime shows while the Channels tab includes a list of all the channels available. Finally, if you're interested in downloading apps or accessing your subscriptions, you can head to the ?Apps? and ?Subscriptions? tabs respectively. Upon entering the website, you will find the header section with logo on the left, CTA and login panel on the right and menus in the middle. There are five main categories - Watch Live?, On-Demand?, TV Guide?, Channels, and Apps. Each of these categories has a dedicated page which does exactly what its header says. So, if you want to stream live content, you can get started by clicking on the Watch Live button. If you're looking for on-demand content, you can head to the On-Demand tab. The TV Guide tab will show all of currently airing primetime shows while the Channels tab includes a list of all of channel's available. Finally, if you're interested in downloading apps or accessing your subscriptions, you can head to the Apps and Subscriptions tabs respectively.

Content

TVPlayer is one of the fastest-growing platforms with popular channels catering to a wide range of audiences. With 50+ channels, it covers genres such as Drama, Reality, News, Sports, Kids, and Lifestyle. The network is not nearly as well-stocked as Hulu with regards to its content library, but it does have some impressive British channels. These channels include free and premium British channels which together make up for a quality films, reality TV, live sports and TV series streaming experience. The British influence on the network is quite evident in its channel lineup, so if you're from the US, you may not be too impressed.

Desktop/Mobile experience

I attempted to stream the website on my iPhone 7 and on a Roku device. I found that the app was much lighter than I expected; it was only 4MB in size. The streaming experience from all of the devices was exceptional.

Basic is Free but not Ad-Free

Even if you don't want to subscribe, you can still watch the majority of free to air channels for free. These channels would carry ads through TVPlayer to compensate for the free viewing experience. However, that takes nothing away from the whole experience as there are no third-party annoying pop-ups or clickbait ads.

Compatibility is not a problem

If you click the Apps category in the main menu, you will be taken to a new page that provides a link to all the compatible devices. Here, you will find app links for various devices such as Android, iOS, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and even gaming consoles such as Xbox.

Content availability can be a problem

Sometimes streaming can be difficult because there is a lack of content. For example, I wasn't able to watch ITV and Channel 4's certain TV shows because of content restrictions.

Plans & Pricing

TVPlayer has two plans: Basic and Premium. The Basic plan offers free content but with advertising. This plan has free-to-air TV channels which can be watched on any of the devices mentioned above. The premium plan costs £6.99 and it offers more than 80 channels which can be watched in HD clarity, including some popular UK networks such as BBC1, ITV1, and Channel 5. One thing I would like to highlight is that you can only stream one device at a time; however, you can watch recordings on up to five devices at once if you have the Premium plan. This may be inconvenient for some people, especially if they have more than one device they'd like to use simultaneously.

Suggestions I have for TVPlayer

I believe that the network should expand beyond its British roots and partner with leading studios around the world to provide content that is competitive. We have seen collaborations between Disney, Paramount, Fox and other major studios through?'Movies Anywhere'? I would like TVPlayer to do something similar in order to improve its content library and make it more appealing to a global audience.

Conclusion

I don't have any complacency against the TVPlayer streaming service. However, when you compare it with the likes of leading services such as Hulu, Netflix or Prime Video, it is nowhere to be seen. I would suggest you stream TVPlayer for free if you want to watch the free-to-air content. And as far as premium content is concerned, I don't feel it is worth the investment.
