5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Freeview has released its 14-day electronic programme guide on the iPhone.

The app allows you to select your region, and you can not only sort the list of displayed channels but conveniently turn off all the home shopping ones that seem to pad out so much of the Freeview schedule.

Freeview HD is currently transmitting the BBC's HD channel and ITV 1 HD. Channel 4 and S4C in Wales will launch soon, Freeview said.

Set-top box maker Humax yesterday said it is now shipping its HD-Fox T2 Freeview HD set-top box. ®
