YouView Launched in time for the Olympic Opening Ceremony
I was one of the lucky ones who were selected to trial the Brand New YouView box. I’m unfortunately not able to tell you anything about the trial, but all I can say is get one if you can. I have enjoyed my experience from the start.
The new set-top box offering subscription-free digital TV and catch-up unveiled earlier this month, is now being stocked by retail partners including John Lewis, Currys, Comet, Argos, Amazon, Richer Sounds and the Euronics Group.
YouView provides access to over 100 digital TV and radio channels along with a seven day backwards EPG and on demand programming from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. Sky’s Now TV service and content from STV will be available on YouView over the coming months.
Lord Sugar, Chairman of YouView said: “Following a good reception to our retail announcement earlier this month, we are pleased to announce that YouView is now available in retail outlets across the country. The simple-to-use box allows people to search back an entire week to catch what they’ve missed and also combines on-demand services with TV channels, providing extraordinary TV for everyone”.
