  •    Click on a channel name  or enter the channel number to watch live.

  •    The green circles are a visual guide of how much of the programme has passed.  They act like sand timers, emptying of colour as the programme plays. 

  •    Scroll down for more channels.

  •  The volume bar is on the right.

  •    The search box is on the top - very useful if there are lots of channels. Search for channels, programme names or 'football', 'film' etc. Tick the checkbox to search the programme descriptions as well.
