YouView from BT

What is YouView from BT?

YouView from BT is a home digital TV service which brings together live channels with on demand and catch-up content.  BT calls its digital TV service BT TV, but customers are provided with a YouView+ box, which includes access on demand libraries and catch-up TV.

The YouView set-top box allows you to connect to the free-to-air digital TV channels through your home aerial, and it also connects to your BT broadband service in order for you to download the on demand content.
