  • I have now ordered an Apple TV 4th generation and will sell both of my YouView boxes on eBay. Life can be as simple as you make it. YouView chose to do a phased roll out, many other companies don't. I had a simple choice to ditch YouView and buy an Apple TV rather than wallowing in the wait for YouView to to decide me…
  • I currently watch it via Chromecast and much prefer it to Netflix. I hate US drama - I find it way too formulaic. I have Netflix, Amazon Prime and BritBox. I watch something on Netflix once a month, if that, and it's usually British oriented stuff like The Crown. I pay for Sky merely because of the way catch-up is…

  • Yes, my Freeview Play box was a straight swap for my BT YouView box. I have it set to the same 1080p resolution and the same input. I have a Panasonic plasma panel which displays images with an almost analog quality and I have as much digital processing turned off as possible - I have high standards when it comes to video…
  • I decided to buy a Humax FVP-4000T after using YouView from day one. I have a BT box but fancied a change. I read so many negative reviews on the FVP-4000T but reading between the lines I realised that most bad reviews were a result of user error, poor Freeview signal or inflated expectations. I like the extra…
