Depends on what STB/TV you are using. Most TVs and STBs - No. They don't have enough computing power.
An Android TV box with Kodi and Exodus add-on works well.

For viewers who are only interested in On Demand viewing, we’re developing a Freeview On Demand smart TV app that is delivered entirely over IP.
When this smart TV app is released, Freeview On Demand will be accessible from the apps menu of all Smart TVs that support the app. And users of these Smart TVs will only need a broadband connection to access Freeview On Demand, no TV antenna connection would be required.

There are world TV channels available legally via satellite outside of Freeview. It depends though on which specific channels/countries you are looking for. We have some listed on our website (www.eastbayaerials.co.nz) as a guide, but chances are there might me something more suitable.
The benefits of this is that you save more on Internet bandwidth and doesn't lag or splutter. The trade off is that most satellite signals are in SD.
Hope this helps.
