Let us tell you about an app that lets you watch Live TV on your iPhone or iPad without jailbreak for free. With apps of all kinds that you can easily download on your smart devices, any kind of media that interests you is always at your fingertips. With your iPhone or iPad, you can watch, read, and interact with all of your favorite apps and content.
Channels is an app recently released on Reddit that lets you watch Live TV on your iPhone or iPad. We’ve found this app shared at Reddit quite interesting and certainly delivers what it promises. Much like Facebook or Twitter is your go to app when you want to stay on top of trends and for social networking. You use Instagram to explore all kinds of photos and Youtube is a hub for videos ranging from entertainment to effective infotainment.
Channels might be the next go to app for watching Live TV on your smart devices for free. Otherwise, there are not many options available for watching live TV on your smart devices. Sure, you can buy subscription from HBO or Netflix but it’s not affordable for everyone. Especially if you’re not a power user, you wouldn’t want to spend any money on subscriptions.
How to Watch Live TV On iPhone/iPad
As mentioned above, Channels app is absolutely free and you can watch Live TV from your favorite and many other popular channels using Channels app. The best thing about it is that it doesn’t require Jailbreak and the fact that its free just doubles up the fun.

Live Watch TV on Your iPhone / iPad (No Jailbreak)
Channels app present you with a variety of TV channels to choose from and enjoy. It has a vivid collection of TV channels and you can watch any TV channel live for free. The channels are categorized in distinct categories such as Sports, Lifestyle, News, Comedy, etc.
Some of the popular TV channels that are a favorite of most users are:
- Sky Sports
- Disney Channel
- Fox Sports
- Comedy Central
- Discovery Channel
- Box Nation
…and many more
Channels is a free app and to sustain their service they show ads just like your typical TV. You will see a short video ad when you start streaming a channel. Similarly, you will see an ad every time you switch channels.
There is a downside of using Cydia Impactor too. As it happens with side loading apps you will have to repeat the same process every week. This is due to the restriction imposed by Apple and nothing to do with Cydia Impactor or Channels app.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching Live TV on my iPhone with Channels app despite ads once in a while. And, if you’re a power user like me you wouldn’t mind side loading the app every seven days.
