You can now watch all your favourite programmes from BBC 1 and 2, ITV 1, Channel 4 and Five via the Zattoo online media player.

The service already offered a host of satellite channels but now is claiming to be the first of its kind to offer all five of the UK's terrestrial channels, and for free.

Content will be streamed live to Zattoo subscribers and joins financial news from Bloomberg, children’s programming from Cbeebies and special interest channels such as AutoMoto TV and The Poker Channel.

To get started, download the free Zattoo media player to your computer (Mac, PC and Linux systems) from www.zattoo.com and then set up your preferences through the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) and Channel Manager functions.
