What is the YouView set-top box?
YouView is a new TV on-demand service from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five, BT and Talk Talk. It combines Freeview with an innovative new interface that integrates catch-up TV from all the major broadcasters into one seamless package.
Made by Humax, this set-top box is the first version of the service and it comes with two tuners and a 500GB hard drive so you can record live TV as well.. Retailing at £299, the box will also be available through package deals with BT and Talk Talk in the future.
