ITV Player (on-demand) is now available on the Samsung SMT-S7800 Freesat+HD Receiver.
The software required to receive ITV Player (channel 903) should be available to download over-the-air now providing you have updates set to ‘automatic’ from within the menu.
The latest software version you should have is 007.000.0379, firmware version 0.39/1.43. Unfortunately Samsung appear to have supplied any release notes on their support website.
We believe the update includes the following and was available a few weeks ago before being pulled due to ITV Player issues:
– Support for the iTV Player
– Resolved the issue with YouTube log-in
– Resolved the issue with the number of media files listed
– Improved the recordings
