We are probably the last generation of viewers who will ever know what it was like to have to sit down at a set time to watch our favourite TV shows. And to sit through all the ad breaks in all their shouty, garish, lowest common denominator hideousness.

More and more people are getting their telly fix online, on tablets and now even on their smartphones, so it’s not really a surprise to see this new site enter its beta phase. Yes, you can catch up at the various broadcasters individual online players – 4OD, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player etc - but youriplayer.co.uk presents the TV listings in a concise, easy to navigate format. And watching the shows you want is just one click away.

So you get the shows you want, when you want them, and all for free. Result.

In future, they’re saying, you’ll be able to personalise your home page, too.
