This means you can view these channels – which include entertainment, sport, news, religion and shopping  - without a Freeview HD box or even a TV.    The apps also have Sino TV and a  Sikh channel.

The VisionTV line up includes international news channels such as TV/C News from across the African continent, Ben TV and Hellenic provides Greek music, culture and entertainment.

Tanya Vidmar from Vision TV says "As portable TV viewing increases we wanted to ensure that our TV service is available to all our customers no matter where they are, when they are accessing it or what device they are using. We introduced the VisionTV UK app to tap into this connected audience and evolve our offering in line with the multiscreen revolution"

You could buy a plug-in USB receiver for your laptop. That will need to be connected to a suitable aerial, such as that you may be using for a 'main' TV but to be able to use both you have to use an active splitter to avoid serious signal loss. There are several makes, I use one from Hauppauge that has dual HD tuners so I can watch one programme whilst recording another onto my laptop's HDD.

Some, but not all, of the programmes are available via the internet - providing you have a fast enough connection (for SD it needs to be at least 4 Mbps, for HD it needs to be better than 12 Mbps).
