FilmOn Free TV Live iOS app review

With the native app you can:
– Attach our new FilmOn devices allowing you to watch your local TV FREE NOW
– Record shows using a DVR feature that stores shows on your iPad.
– Pay for Premium Channels in the full package of 150+ HD stations
– Pay for On Demand programming

Issues: The live stream is not really live. It is delayed about 30 seconds. The stream gets interrupted at times, probably due to the huge amount of people logging on to watch TV on their iPad. Also during our tests the Safari browser crashed at least twice and one time even caused an iPad restart.

Update Note: FilmOn was previously available via a Safari web browser at the URL, but that feature is no longer supported for some reason, so you have to download and install their native application.

8 Comments to “FilmOn TV”

  1. Woooh!! maybe I’m easily impressed, but I am blown away that this even exists.

    I’ve been using it for about half an hour now, accessing over 3G.

    The playback has seized up a few times when I select the program schedule. It unseizes if I select the channel again, but then I have to sit through the commercials again.

    So I guess I won’t relay on it for any show that I MUST watch every second of, but I think that from now on I am going to be a lot more up to date on my favorite shows.

  2. WOOPS: my other comment about “having to sit through the commercials again” was incorrect. Those were the regularly scheduled commercials. I thought that they played automatically whenever a new channel was selected. Looks like I was wrong about that.

  3. I love it but it doesn’t work with iOS 4.2 for iPad xD.

    Why? Because of the new version of QuickTime

  4. I tried this and it worked great, but since updating to 4.2gm it no longer works, if this is not looked into it wont be available to ipad users in the coming days

  5. iPhone tv app

  6. I have only found this today and it works great here in Australia on my iPad

  7. Here in Southern Spain we have lost our UK TV (They moved the satellite!) With FilmOn it is now fully restored. Good quality too. Using the iPad with an Apple TV box we can watch via the TV instead of the tablet.

  8. Can get uk tv through film on and with my ipad and Apple TV In Southern spain as tony pride but when I set my I pad to go through Apple TV it keeps reverting back to I pad any answers?
