See Saw – Ad-supported online TV launched

See Saw is a new ad-supported TV-on-demand service that launched last week with more than 3,000 hours of content. See Saw includes programmes first broadcast in the past seven days and as early as a few hours ago on Channel 4, Channel 5, BBC and shows from independent producers. See Saw, which is currently in public beta, will be available only in the UK. Viewers can watch TV shows on SeeSaw for free with a 60 second pre and mid roll advertising within programmes.


The site is easy to navigate with the ability to browse by channel and categories which includes genres like comedy, drama, factual, lifestyle, entertainment and sport.

The service does not have a deal with ITV, however, some archive ITV programming is being offered by SeeSaw through its deals with independent producers, including the dramas Kingdom, Doc Martin and Footballers' Wives. Other archive shows available on the SeeSaw website include Doctor Who, Red Riding, Green Wing, Waterloo Road, Man Stroke Woman, The Apprentice, Eurotrash and What Not to Wear.

See Saw offers three different viewing options to suit your internet connection speed - High, Medium or Low. If your internet connection falls below the required speed, you can switch to the medium or low quality to enjoy lag-free streaming video.

The company said that it expects to add a further 2,000 hours of content by the end of June, when it plans to start charging for some programming, likely to be mostly US shows.
