The EE TV is a Freeview box so if you have a regular TV aerial then you get non subscription access to more 70 regular and 13 HD channels just remember you still need a TV license. If this sounds like a lot, then you do get the EE TV box itself for free and the price contains your broadband and your phone line so it isn’t so bad.


One of the tricks the EE TV has up its sleeve is the ability to record 4 channels at the same instant, but you need to select this or a characteristic called Replay. This is a different approach to YouView which allows you to watch anything from the previous seven days on the guide, if it is available on a catch-up service and it’ll simply link you to the right place.

You can see what is on after the show you are watching with left or right. This is displayed along the bottom of the screen. There is plenty of space for recordings with a 1TB drive inside, just bear in mind that the Replay characteristic uses some space to work.

It fundamentally gives you full access to everything you would do on the TV. the EE TV app you can watch live TV, watch recordings and make use of the Replay characteristic. And and any moment you can select to switch to the big screen in Chromecast fashion.

Each user can also have their own favorite shows and view recordings they scheduled, so you do not all need to browse the entire library every time.
