Anybody had a dabble yet? Coming to YouView do you think?

    TBH I've played with it on appleTV and it's OK but I won't be paying for it. Content is king and they don't have the depth (yet).
    I doubt it'll come to YV. They've pushed it onto some (android?) devices but I think YV's a bit niche for them. Also YV app development has hardly been the most active. YV has the best recording set-up of any device but the world is becoming streamer centric IMHO.

    I doubt this service will be coming to YouView as it is designed to push Apple products, with the odd smart TV thrown in.
    Britbox is. HBO+ is a maybe and Disney+ a likely, in my opinion.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.

    Would love Disney+ to come to Youview next year. I don't seem to fussed about Britbox and had a look at Apple + but don't think I will be getting it.
    I may get Disney+ depending on cost and if I can get app on TV or Yoview and add that to Netflix and Amazon Prime that I already have.

    I think Sky might have something to say about HBO+ coming to the UK.....

    HBO+ seems more unlikely with the new HBO/Sky deal announced a day or two ago.

    I have Britbox on the Apple TV 4K. I'm undecided whether or not I'll keep it after my trial expires.

    I barely use my Youview box anymore. I record football highlights on it but everything else is streamed via the ATV4K, including all the Players/apps that I regularly use, and which are also carried on the YV box. I even now stream BT Sport via the ATV rather than watch on the BT box.

    Yes, and probably not.
    I'm liking the material so far, even if it's small pickings to begin with. Have it free for 12 months so obviously happy to dabble and wait for more to arrive. For All Mankind & The Morning Show looking good so far.

    @robotman I have it free as well, although haven't taken up the option as yet, but certainly will be soon, it would be daft not too. It will be interesting to see if this promotion has an effect on sales of devices, maybe not so much high-end, but lower priced iPads for example.
