Where are UK catch-up apps?

  • Samsung are selling the BD-J5900 (a 2015 device using the Opera TV Store) as having iPlayer "coming soon". When I spoke with a Samsung representative in an online chat she confirmed the ITV Hub would also be coming (although I have my doubts - even Samsung staff seem to get Smart Hub and Opera TV Store mixed up).

    How about it Opera TV employees? Any news on UK catch-up services? All 4 and Demand 5 would also be good!

  • Hello,
    currently we do not offer these apps in Opera TV.
    I will relay your inquiry to the appropriate people, and we will look into acquiring them.

  • Wish Id not bought this tv (Sony Bravia KDL- 48WD65) as the Opera TV store is dire. If only Id saved and bought an Android tv which I know has its problems as manufacturers place poor budget spec cpu's but at least it has usuable apps.

    So my questions are - What OS are these tvs based on? Linux? If so, any ideas how to gain root or flash a decent distribution?

    TV is still returnable but I'll give it a little grace if someone can tell me that Opera TV is in beta and better things are planned for it.

  • Also.... How does URL loader work when only input device is a tv remote? How do I input letters?

    I think Sony have been sold a 1990's turkey and Sony customers looking for a 'smart' tv are going to be returning sony hardware back and buying other smart platforms. This hasnt been tested by the people that built it.
