  • I still watch some of the Freeview channels but I have to say in well over the last 2 years almost 85% of my monthly TV viewing has been via the streaming services payed for as well as some of the free ones. Watching via normal TV is slowly decreasing but I would say normal TV will still be around for at lest the next 10…
  • 
I will miss BBC News HD as for watching it in HD on iPlayer will not be the some. I will also sort of miss QVC HD as well as Quest HD. You can really tell the difference in picture quality when watching QVC SD than the old QVC HD that's now gone from Freeview. Quest SD picture quality is ok but not the same when you…
  • Have had to do a retune of both my Yoview boxes a short time again when I got in from work but all seem ok. Not good that Freeview has lost more HD channels yet again.
  • @jonesh @Roy I noticed this on my sisters 55inch Samsung 4k smart tv. That she had some channels in the 800s. She no longer has Youview and just uses the tuner on the TV and also has an Amazon Firestick 4k plugged in to her TV. I been staying at hers over the weekend will she's been away and also watching her doggies. She…
  • Maybe someone on here can help you. For thats not really a Youview type box and more of a Freeview Play/Android type box and this is a Youview Community forum. As you may know as you have posted here in the past. Best bet is to post over on the Digital Spy Forums that I also use a lot. You may get a better answer over…
  • Only once I have manually retuned the Youview box. Think this is a step back for Freeview with the the lose of yet more HD versions of channels.
  • I just seen an ad on Horror channel for changes to the channel lineup and rebranding of the channel from 30th June and it lists the channel as being on Sky, Virgin, Freesat and Freeview. It dont say anything about Youview.
  • Not a channel I really been watching since it launched and I have never been a fan of Piers Morgan. I watch GB News more but my main news channel is BBC News. Followed by at times Sky News. @kodikid think it would have said Freeview/Youview 237. They may think not may have Youview so don't list it as being on Youview As I…
  • I cancelled Paramount + last night and the 7 day free trial will end next Wednesday. Got an email to confirm it was being cancelled. Till more content comes to Paramount + I will be giving it a miss. Although I did watch Netflix last night and the episode of Greys Anatomy on Now that I missed during the week. I found that…
  • I have taken Paramount + but may cancel after my 7 days free trail. Only as there is still not enough content on there for me and a few shows on there I never watched in the first place when they was on Sky Atlantic.
  • @kodikid I agree the movies on Sky Cinema has declined over the years but there are still some good moves on there. At times I use the Now entertainment more than Sky Cinema. In the last 6 months or so its Disney + I been using the most. I dont have Sky Sports for I would not watch it enough in a month to justify me paying…
  • Tuesday evening app arrived on the Amazon Firesticks and iPad. I have downloaded the app to my two Amazon Firesticks and my iPad but have so far not still not taken out a account for Paramount +. Thought about doing so yesterday but ended up going to be early. As was at dentist yesterday afternoon and got a big filling…
  • 
In my option Philips once a good make of TVs has slowly been going downhill over the last 5 to 10.
  • At times its best not to try and do a retune when you lose channels. I have always been getting a weak signal from coms 7 in very bad weather. Coms 7 is due to close just under 2 weeks time and more minor changes are expected in the Freeview line up in July. The CBS/AMC owned channels are changing in July with both CBS…
  • @Roy I agree their is loads of HD content on Now. The main channel on Now that I watch mostly in the evenings and during the week is Sky Witness and 90% of that and its content is in HD even via on demand/catch up. @@kodikid as Roy says there is more HD content on Now than you soon to think. My £2 a month offer on Now HD…
  • The ones in your link was similar to the ones I used. Yes I had 626 lines and colour fro the get go. I remember an uncle who died about 15 years ago now used to have a old BetaMax in the late 70s-early 80s. Long before I got my first VHS recorder. It could have been the late 90s not the mid 90s that I got my first DVD…
  • I’m earliest memory of a TV was in the mid 70s we had a 21inch CRT Ferguson TV rented from the old Granada shop. It had buttons for 5 channels but only 3 channels was broadcast at the time. TV as repaired at last once a year if I remember. in 1982 got rid of that TV and bought got Philips 28inch CRT from the old Comet…
  • @Roy thanks for the link and info.
  • Yes the BT TV app still works with Youview. I use still use it at times if im at my sisters or in my house to see whats on the Now channels for the evening. As the Now EPG only gives you whats on now and next. Dont know if the EPG on the BT TV app will show the Now channels for non BT broadband customers. As im currently…
  • 
I had an LG LCD 24 inch well over 10 years ago and never really liked it. LG may have improved since then. Panasonic used to be a good make of TV. My sister used to have a Panasonic LCD 32inch HD ready non smart TV and it has good picture for 720p but sound was not the best at times and the EPG on it was rubbish. In…
  • @kodikid The Hisense 4k was on sale on QVC a good few weeks ago with 3 easy payments but they just have the full HD version on QVC now. If I was to buy a new TV and I not badly needing a new TV it would be a Samsung again but as I posted above I cant fit more then a 40 inch in my living room.
  • 
I never new you could not get a 4k TV in a 32inch. The biggest TV I can have in my living room is a 40inch. The TV I have in my living room the now is a 2014 full HD Samsung smart TV and TV in my bedroom is a 2013 22inch Samsung full HD smart TV. My sisters TV is a 2019 4k Samsung Qled smart TV and she has it…
  • Good movie. I also went to see it on Sunday.
  • It's not the weekend though just been a long bank holiday weekend. I emailed Youview earlier about them on the forums and for them to look into TimeforTV. To see if they was a troll. Auto reply I got back said. We will make sure your communication is passed across the relevant person In Youview. Not sure how you can tell…
  • @TIME4TV Although the Youview software may be slowly looking outdated I dont full agree with your comments or that of @HONEST1
  • I dont agree the forums seem fine and the Youview website seems ok.
  • I wonder how many new just out of the Cinema Paramount movies will end up on Paramount + and not go on the likes of Sky Cinema first. I went to cinema Odeon this afternoon just outside town to see the new Tom Gun Maverick movie and it was very good. I really enjoyed it but it was £12.75 to get in. Tom Gun Maverick is…
  • @Roy yes that’s the percentage of those that still don’t have a 4k TV.. Dad at times will watches SD BBC1 as he sometimes forgets BBC1 HD is on 101 but hes now on his late 80s and don’t always keep to well. Also he dont watch the TV as much as he used to.
