Never Miss Your Favourite Shows With IceTV For Android
Don’t you hate that sinking feeling, when you’ve just left town for the weekend and you realise you forgot to program your DVR to record your favourite movie or sporting event?
What do you? Turn around, call a friend? No, if you have Ice TV, simply pull your Android out of your pocket and schedule the recording there and then. It couldn’t be simpler.
Filling a real niche in the market, Australian EPG (Electronic Program Guide) Specialists Ice TV have been at the very forefront of the technology since its inception in digital set top boxes some 6 or so years ago.
Well before the days of Freeview, you could hook your Beyonwiz, Topfield or other brand DVR up to an Ice TV subscription and receive full EPG data to your recorder, which allowed you to schedule recordings in advance as well as receive in depth information on your upcoming shows.
A couple of years ago, Ice TV took the service a step further and allowed Subscribers to log in via the Interwebs to follow, track, edit and record their favourite series. What else to do on a lunch break than to pre-set your next month’s worth of TV… Before TiVo was cool (or ever), Ice TV allowed full series recording, allowing the control even of HD or SD channels, first runs, or repeats.
In the last 12 months or so, the service has been perfected for mobile, in particular, Android! The Ice TV app is available as a free download in the Google Play store and allows access to all your Recordings, upcoming 7 day EPG, and other information you can view on new TV shows as well as old favourites.
There is a plethora of information available via your Android, and from our own testing runs perfectly well on a simple 3G connection, on Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, above screenshot was from our Samsung Galaxy SIII, but we also tested on an ICS Galaxy SII and Gingerbread and ICS Galaxy Note; as well as our Asus Transformer tablet. The tablet really is an ideal layout for reading all about your favourite shows.
So, if you love to be in control of your TV and not the other way around, best you scoot on across to Ice TV’s website and sign up for a free trial.
Your TV will thank you for it.
