EE TV introduces Recordings To Go so you can watch TV anywhere on any mobile device for free
Launched today, Recordings To Go allows EE TV customers to record and transfer content from any of its 70+ TV channels to a smartphone or tablet as soon as a programme has aired. Unlike iPlayer’s download feature, Recordings To Go content never expires, and there’s absolutely no restriction on what you can record and save.
While it may sound like a complicated system of attaching cables to computers, EE stresses that it’s as simple as opening the EE TV iOS or Android app and browsing your way through the electronic programme guide (EPG). Tap a programme you want to transfer onto your phone, and once the show has aired you’ll find it ready to view on your device. It’s unclear if EE TV’s other supported services (iPlayer, Demand 5, YouTube and Now TV) will also work with Recordings To Go.
Interestingly, it seems that shows are transferred to your phone or tablet via your home Wi-Fi network, meaning it shouldn’t eat into your mobile data.
As EE TV is a live service, you’ll need a television licence to use it, but thanks to Recordings To Go, it gives many “cord-cutters” a reason to keep live TV over a life of on-demand streaming services. Understandably that’s good news for dwindling TV licensing subscriptions.
