Anybody know of a good Android app for showing what is on TV now and for the next few days?
I use Digiguide, which is excellent, on my Windows based machines, it has an iPhone app but not Android app yet.

Cheers

Filmon? Not only does it have a guide for each channel - you can watch them as well! :wink:
(and it works with Chromecast again!)

Another vote for http://www.tvguide.co.uk/ - the thing I like about it is you can customize it so it only displays the channels that you actually watch.

Has anyone else found in the last week or so you now have to login every time you visit http://www.tvguide.co.uk/ - It no longer remembers who you are and your TV channels? Annoying.

Feersum is pretty good, probably my favourite so far and I've tried lots of them including tvguide.co.uk. Simple and customisable to hide channels that you're not interested in. Get it from the playstore.

TVguide.co.uk app uses a lot of memory, 150Mb for a tv guide??????? May be an issue for you. Feersum use 20Mb or so

Another thought. If you have Kodi then checkout the ivue, renegades and assassin tv guides. Have all three installed but tend to normally use ivue.
