Alan C: London Live is a local TV channel, which has to be encrypted on satellite due to rights restrictions as it is only intended to cover the London area. This is not an issue on Freeview, as London Live is only broadcast from Crystal Palace and a handful of other transmitters in the London area.

If you are in the UK, have a device with Freeview Play and an adequate broadband connection, you can select a number of programmes from various channels upto 7 days ago.
