Freeview on Apple TV

Quick Answer

  • The Freeview app is available for Apple TV only in Australia. For other countries, you need to screen mirror the Freeview content on your Apple TV using your iPhone or Mac.
  • Install the Freeview AU app: Open App Store → Search for Freeview AU → Select the app → Tap the Get button.
  • Screen Mirror Using iPhone: Install Freeview on iPhone → Open the app → Play any video content → Go to Control Panel → Click the Screen Mirroring icon → Choose Apple TV.

You can download the Freeview app from the App Store on Apple TV 4K (tvOS 10.0 or later) if you are residing in Australia. If you have older Apple TV models or reside outside Australia, you can screen mirror the Freeview app from your iPhone or Mac.

Freeview is a streaming app that offers more than 80+ live TV channels and 30,000 hours of on-demand content in high quality. As the platform is available only in selected countries, you need to get an IPVanish VPN on Apple TV to access the Freeview app without any geo-restrictions.
