    I'm afraid Alexa on youview aspires to rudimental. It really isn't worth bothering with.
    Ignore this if you disagree.

    Sometimes Alexa works and sometimes it don't on Youview.
    I have sort of given up using Alexa voice search on Youview.

    @awelshman do you have the BT TV skill or YouView skill paired? Try saying "Alexa, search for EastEnders, on YouView" or "...on B.T. T.V." (with a larger gap between BT and TV than you might normally say). What exactly is the reply if it still doesn't work?

    "She" can be very fickle  :D

    Its not very good or reliable.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.
