You'll soon be able to catch up on TV shows you missed by browsing backwards through the Freeview EPG.
The EPG upgrade will only benefit those with a connected set-top box or TV, but will bring a week's worth of catch-up programmes to the televisual buffet.
But its not clear whether everyone with an existing Freeview box will be able to get the upgrade – by the sounds of things, it might need to be pre-loaded on new hardware.
There's no word yet precisely when the EPG upgrade will be released, unfortunately.
Ilse Howling, MD of Freeview, said, "It's too early to say when [the EPG upgrades] will be available, but that is our direction of travel."
The news will come as a blow to YouView, which had hoped to be the Freeview of video on demand – it looks like it may have missed its chance.
