Our YouView Review

YouView is a UK digital TV service developed in order to provide subscription-free channels, as well as catch-up TV and on demand. This provider utilises both the digital signal from your home aerial as well as your broadband in order to offer both TV and on demand, downloadable content.

YouView's service is available on its own, but you can also take it with a package from broadband providers TalkTalk or BT. YouView lets you pause, rewind and record live TV, watch the free high definition broadcasts if you have an HD-ready TV and choose from over 70 Freeview channels. With ScrollBack, you can watch catch-up from the last 7 days of TV from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, and with on demand you have access to download from a library of films and TV.

YouView Services

YouView is a digital TV-only provider, without any additional home services offered.  You do need to have a functioning home aerial and good broadband service in place in order to watch with YouView.

YouView’s TV service include access to over 70 Freeview channels, including the popular mainstream stations like BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, as well as sister stations like BBC Three and Film4.  Along with these, viewers with an HD-ready TV can watch the free-to-air HD channels, offering clear, crisp high definition picture quality.

YouView also offers ScrollBack, which lets you view catch-up content from the last 7 days with BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and 5 Demand, all on your TV.  There is also a library of on demand content, including TV and movies, and your broadband connection lets you download the programmes to watch when you want.

With the YouView+ box you also have the option to pause, rewind and record live TV, so you never have to miss your favourite programmes, and you can keep all the best shows and films.

YouView Channels

YouView gives you access to Freeview channels such as BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, along with the popular sister stations such as movie channel Film4 and entertainment alternatives BBC Three and E4.  You also get a range of +1 channels, showing a broadcast one hour later.

With the ScrollBack feature, you also get access to 7 days of catch-up TV from BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, so you can watch any episodes you missed or forgot to record, and there is other on demand content available to download as well, including movies and TV shows.

YouView Packages

YouView is a subscription-free digital TV service; you only pay a one-off cost at the beginning, and then there is no additional fixed charge for having the service at home.  You do need a broadband connection, which will come at a cost from another provider.

You can take YouView with BT or TalkTalk as part of a broadband package; this way you get the features of YouView with the essential web connection as part of a single deal.  TalkTalk offers YouView with a low monthly cost for broadband and calls, whilst BT TV does something similar but also includes access to additional on demand content exclusive to BT customers.
