Smart Sony tv compatibility with bt youview box

have purchased a Sony that has inbuilt Youview.(tv not yet installed). Will this interfere with my ability to access my BT Sport. As am told that the internal Youview needs switching off in order to record.

    One can't get BT Sport on a Sony YouView TV. If you access it via box you'll be fine.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.

    Hi Roger, the YouView feature on Sony TVs does not support subscription channels like the YouView box does. Therefore for channels such as BT Sports the box will still be required to watch these internet channels.

    YouView on Sony does not have a record function so we would recommend using the YouView box for your recordings. Using the box on the TV should not have any impact on the integrated version of YouView.
