Quite impressed with Manhattan support so far.Both times I've questioned them I've received responses within 24 hours.The first was regarding the mobile app which they confirm is coming later this year and it will allow scheduling & deleting programmes with immediate effect - no cloud involvement with a delay. Alternate recordings will not be offered in the first version but that will come.Second question was about padding. Not in the current version but coming in a few months, probably the April update that's been mentioned.They seem to be quite happy to tell you what's coming.
... Next time I'm out and realise there's a program I wish to record and can't I will just remember how lucky we are to have full now tv on a youview box.
Hi all, Starting today YouView will be phasing out support for the YouView mobile app with final support ending on the 31st March 2020. The YouView mobile app will then be removed from the App Store and Google Play. The BT TV app is available to all BT TV subscribers. It can be used to connect to your set top box to set recordings remotely.More information regarding this change can be found on our Support Site here: https://support.youview.com/mobile-app/Thanks,Sarah
This is dreadful. Many people on low incomes will be retail customers who use the YouView boxes without subscriptions.

Appalling decision. The app is brilliant. I run through my Radio Times setting up the week's programmes in the app. Now will have to sit with the telly on in bad light and no table doing it direct in the Humax box guide. Not to mention setting stuff remotely will now be impossible. I shan't be buying any more YouView boxes.Hi Bruce, I couldn't agree more with you. Youview seem to forget many people who use the boxes in their homes each day. It's become a part of your daily routine. Very selfish and overlooked decision. John L
