From January 2018 as part of compliance with BBC guidelines, to watch BBC channels on TVPlayer on Android devices, you will need to have BBC iPlayer installed on your phone or tablet.
When you select BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four, CBBC or CBeebies in our TV guide, BBC iPlayer will automatically open and the live stream will play.
The experience is seamless and you can watch all of the BBC channels on Wifi, 3G and 4G.
When you’ve finished watching a BBC channel, you can return to the TVPlayer app where you can watch all of our other channels.
Exiting out of watching on iPlayer will take you right back to TVPlayer allowing you to pick up exactly where you left off.
