App Description

TV Launcher brings all the live UK TV channels you know and love into one convenient launcher on your Apple TV - perfect for cord-cutters!

The Apple TV app makes it easy to track the programmes you’re watching but if you’re still wanting to watch live, you know the score. Open the app, find the channels list, look for the channel you want to watch and then press play. TV Launcher takes away that pain by allowing you to open any of the supported streaming apps directly to the channel.

TV Launcher contains these great features:


TV Launcher supports all of the main UK streaming platforms that have live TV. You’ll be able to jump straight to channels in BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, UKTV Play, NOW (Sky), Discovery+ and STV Player.


You don’t even have to open TV Launcher to get to the channel you want to watch. With the supported Top Shelf extension, you can choose the channels that appear on your Apple TV Home Screen and jump directly to them.


See what's on the channel you want to watch before you leave the app.


If you have a select few channels you always like to watch, add them to your favourites list.


Not interested in the news or don’t have kids? Choose the channels you want to hide and only keep around the ones you’re likely to watch. If you don’t have a streaming app installed, you can hide channels from those too.


Different parts of the UK (England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland) have slight variations to their standard channels. Choose your region in the settings menu and you’ll be shown the channels you expect.


TV Launcher supports many layout configurations so you can organise your channels exactly how you’d like to find them. There’s options like a full list, grouping by app or even by category too.


Once you’ve organised your channels, choose how to display them with options like the ability to show channel names or group names.


If you can’t find the channel you’re looking for, search for it!
