So after Livebox’s departure there was a gaping hole left in the live tv section for awhile.

Thankfully we have seen the release of two apps since then one which works on iOS devices the other on the Apple TV 4.

Now there’s a new player on the scene “Surge” this application has been in the works for a short while and we were fortunate enough to be one of the early beta testers.

Since the first time I tried surge I knew straight away that it had potential, and whilst it’s undergone some plastic surgery to make it more user friendly it’s also had some deeper work done to make it robust.

Surge currently works on iOS and we hope to see it hit tvOS in the near future so users will be good to go the iOS app has native AirPlay mode so even if you don’t have the latest ATV you can still enjoy this on a big screen.

Surge is currently available from IPwnstore which you can get from here.
