UKTV Play offers a personalised selection of shows, box sets and collections from across the British broadcaster’s selection of free-to-air channels such as Dave, Yesterday, Really, Drama and Home. The app also allows viewers to pause on one device and resume on another. Shows include Emmy- and BAFTA -nominated original Taskmaster, the most watched show on UKTV Play in 2018, brand new scripted comedy Sliced and every episode from Yesterday's charming car auctioning show, Bangers and Cash. A new series of UKTV original Judge Romesh (the second most watched show on UKTV Play last year) is also available.

The service will be integrated with the all-new Apple TV app the all-new Apple TV app which offers Apple TV channels, personalised recommendations and over 100,000 iTunes films and TV shows, including what is claimed to be the largest collection of 4K HDR titles to browse, buy or rent.
