Online TV service SeeSaw has announced new features available to viewers who want to watch its on-demand TV shows.
Viewers can now choose whether to watch programmes for free with adverts, or pay a subscription fee to watch without any interruptions. This makes it the only online viewing platform to offer Channel 4’s 4oD and Five’s Demand Five content without adverts, according to the company.
SeeSaw first launched back in February 2010 and offers a range of free and paid-for content. To find out more about other options for watching on-demand TV on your PC or laptop check out our free guide to online TV services.
SeeSaw NonStop allows users to switch off commercial messages around free on-demand TV programmes usually funded by advertising for a fee. The service is available at the introductory price of 99p until the end of the year. The normal price will be £2.99 per month.
SeeSaw says it’s first subscription-based offering will be followed by the introduction of premium content packages at a later date.
SeeSaw Ad Selector
SeeSaw has also announced an interactive advertising service that allows viewers to choose which adverts they want to watch before watching their chosen programme. Ad Selector has already been launched by the company in the US and will now be available to UK users.
