All hail the YouView set top box thing!
YouView! YouView is finally here! You know, the internet TV service that gives you Freeview telly along with loads of on-demand content! The thing that they’ve been planning for nearly three years! It’s HERE!
The set top box will be made by Humax and as well as giving you Freeview channels, it will allow you to catch up with the past few days’ TV from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
Yes, sort of like how laptops and tablets and games consoles work. Best of all, the set top box will only set you back £299. WHAT?? Yes, £299, although cheaper versions of the box, subsidised by TalkTalk and BT and offered as part of a broadband bundle, will follow later this year.
All aboard the YouView boat! No, it’s NOT sinking already…
