It looks like Nokia Lumia phones could be getting a TV app that will allow users to watch TV for ‘free’ on their mobile phones.
Leaked screenshots show that the app will be free to download and users will be able to search by category, browse ‘Featured’ shows or see shows based on what they have watched previously. It looks like the app will allow users to stream live TV as well as download shows to watch later offline.
The leaked images have shown up on a Russian Windows Phone forum and it would appear the app will first become available in Finland, there is no information on when or if this is heading to the UK. If it does become available here then Nokia/Microsoft would need to broker a deal with UK TV channels for their streaming services, such as the BBC iPlayer.
Should details of a UK release become available we will let you know.
