Is there any Windows 10 apps
for YouView

both for the existing YouView set top box or Android TV owner via app addon.
or the free tv online market obviously filled cleverly with ads for commercial purposes.

Something like the Sky+ or Sky Go equivalent for Windows, which Sky have not done themselves!!!!

BT Sport has a Windows 10 app which is almost perfect for what it is. A real solid 8 out of 10 which is a thumbs up.

If Sky could assimilate its Sky Q & HD customer base in a Windows 10 all singing all dancing app it would be nice.

I'm not sure on Virgin Media nor TalkTalk offerings.

Does YouView operate outside of the U.K. or is the software or hardware licensedfor use anywhere else in the world.

PC & internet use is rising and Windows is the leader in that regard. Apart from phone it has all bases covered with tablets, Netbooks, Laptop, Desktop & Console (XBOX One)

Still no headway into tiny screen (phone) & Big screen (TV)
In the form of an app

I really have gone off on a tangent and do apologise.

    YouView do not directly provide any second-screen apps, but there are many alternatives for much of the content. They do support remote scheduling and recording on the major mobile platforms, sadly Windows fall into that category.

They do support remote scheduling, recording and some pretty cool links to on demand content across the major mobile platforms, sadly, despite your obvious enthusiasm, Windows does not fall into that category.

    BT Sport Windows 10 App now full screen,
    just need to fix the additional channels bar not showing all 4 on screen without scrolling.
    It's now a 9.5 out of 10.
    Sorry for going further off topic & away from YouView conversation but BT Sport is on YouView
    on BT, TalkTalk, not on Sony Android TV... Yet.

    A consideration which would make discussion of Netflix on Windows 10 on topic here, since Netflix is also on YouView boxes :-)

    And on all of them, not just subscribed ones!

    Thought: I wonder if BT Sport shows any programmes about people trying to scramble back up very slippery slopes? :-)
