Dave catch-up service now available on YouView

Dave, the channel that combines new shows with repeats of classic comedy and other big UK series, has launched an on-demand portal on YouView that offers the last seven days of programming as catch-up content.

The shows can also be played by browsing back through the previous days on the YouView electronic programme guide.

Dave carries a number of different shows, including the exclusive Red Dwarf X - the tenth series of the sci-fi sitcom that brought the original cast back to the characters everyone knows and loves. Russell Howard's Good News, Not Going Out, Frank Skinner's Opinionated and Jo Brand's Big Splash are also highlights on the channel, and back catalogue The Gadget Show and Robot Wars episodes are also occasionally run on Dave.

Dave is one of ten free-to-air UKTV channels and is the first to get a catch-up service. Yesterday and Really will follow with their own on demand platforms later this year.
