Is this YouView death or redemption?

I’ve long argued that YouView should be a satellite and aerial company with dual epg and inputs etc and covering both free markets.

this was widely rubbished on this any many other forums.

I think in this article and the future changes that what I suggested is on its way to realisation.

but I’d it good for YouView or not?

    Think this pointless endeavour is more applicable to Freeview play rather then youview. 
    Youview parsay is in it's death throes with a extinct retail presence and BT / talk talk apparently losing interest. 
    So if anything it's a death bed redemption. 
    Ignore this if you disagree.

    Merging the companies does not necessarily mean merging the technologies.

    The most interesting comment in there, for me, was the mention of a possible internet-only player. Which, if it is to have legs, would imply all the Freeview/Freesat channels being available that way. Something which would be more feasible now Arqiva, with its enormous investment in terrestrial transmitters, is no longer sitting at the table.
    Supporting YouView on Sony TVs is like nailing jelly to a herd of cats
