The 25 best iPhone apps for streaming TV

0 0

Television is watched more and more elsewhere than on … television. Many TV applications are indeed available on iPhone and iPad, allowing you to watch live television or delayed content anywhere and anytime, provided you are connected to the internet. Here is an overview of the top iOS apps for watching TV.

Before we get started, it’s important to note that almost all of the apps listed below work on 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. Image quality will adjust based on connection speed to avoid annoying slowdowns. Another precision, these applications only work, for the most part, on French territory (and some are not even usable in the DOM-TOM…).

It is therefore impossible to watch television using this software during various travels abroad unless you subscribe to a VPN service . We recommend using one of these three, all of which offer an iOS app and quality service. My personal preference going for Cyberghost:

  • Cyberghost
  • ExpressVPN
  • NordVPN

Let’s go for our selection of the best TV apps for iPhone and iPad, ranging from the most general to the most specific to the most specialized, with a detour to streaming movies and series. You will note that most of the TV applications in our selection are free, the paid ones are mentioned as such.

Molotov: the best TV app for iPhone and iPad

Molotov is this platform launched during the summer of 2016, with the aim of revolutionizing the use of television. It is a question of finding in the same place many live channels, but also in replay on different platforms, including Apple TV, iPad and iPhone .

A free offer is offered with 35 channels (TNT and a little more), while paid options allow you to take advantage of additional features, such as full HD included in one of the 3 packages currently offered. We tested and appreciated, it’s probably the reference of its kind on iOS in any case, even in free use.

Historical channels to watch on iPhone and iPad

MYTF1

What could be more logical than to start with the first TV channel, TF1. The corresponding application is called MyTF1 and allows you to watch the channel live. In addition to that, it offers the program of the chain per day or only the evening programs.

Note that the application also allows access to TMC, NT1 and HD1 channels. Last notable thing, catch-up TV is
present, but beware, it does not offer all of the channel’s programs. Also, some shows or series are no longer online if they were broadcast too long ago.

M6, W9 and 6ter with 6play

Pioneer of replay in France, the 6play application of the M6 ​​group is probably one of the most complete. As on the web version of the site , it is almost all the programs of the channel that can be found in the app in addition to live.

Again, the application is free and also offers the programs of W9 and 6ter.

Canal+ and Canalsat in myCANAL

Subject to having taken out an adequate subscription, it is possible to receive all Canal+ programs on any iOS terminal thanks to this application, in addition to being able to control the decoder. If this is not the case, the unencrypted programs remain accessible. Also, some of the shows are available on video on demand. That’s not all, the application also allows access to the 130 Canalsat channels for subscribers to the television package belonging to Canal+ as well as to the CStar and Cnews channels.

Art

The Franco-German channel is also present on our iOS devices thanks to the ARTE application. Live streaming is available, as are many catch-up programs for a limited time, however, like the other services presented in this dossier. Programs like Tracks and Culture Touch, or even Karambolage are on the agenda, among others.

The major news channels to find on iPhone and iPad

BFM TV

The official application of the news channel allows access to live, but also to various reports on hot topics. Video weather is also available making the application complete. Note that BFM TV is one of the few apps to allow access to live video even to people abroad.

CNEWS

When you open the app, the live stream always starts immediately. In addition to that, you can find different shows in replay. A complete application to stay on top of the news!

TV5Monde

All the channel’s international information to be found on your iPhone and iPad. Like BFM TV, TV5Monde can be viewed anywhere in the world, without a VPN.

Streaming on iPhone and iPad

Several apps also offer the test of the service for a month without paying anything, this is a good opportunity for a trial. Beware of the automatic renewal of payment by credit card once the free month has passed! Also, some services offer exclusives, such as Netflix or Amazon with films and series that are sometimes of very good quality.

Specialty channels also available on iOS

Sports and entertainment

Children

The children’s channel can also be watched live or on replay so you don’t miss the episodes of your favorite cartoons. Note: a parental code makes it possible to limit the duration of access to children, we have talked about it here.

And the TV apps of internet operators

Depending on the mobile or internet offer, you may have access, thanks to your provider, to certain channels via a dedicated application:

The TV program: what are we watching tonight?

If some of the previous applications offer a TV program, none allows you to view all the channels at the same time, which is rather logical. Therefore, you have to look for an application offering the complete TV program, and there is a package on the App Store. This is good.

Finally, remember that this type of file cannot be exhaustive. You will inevitably have other applications to recommend because you appreciate them and use them on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to do so via the comments by indicating their strengths and your preferences!
