  • Some not bad viewing figures All-English Champions League final gives BT Sport its highest-ever audience figures as 11.3m tune in This means BT Sport had more viewers during the game, which kicked off at 8pm, than BBC One and ITV1 combined. https…
  • Interestingly the box and leaflet on my spare box show the same picture but the box still has the old signage. Presume your new actual box has the same signage as on the box (unlike mine).
  • The thanks for the image goes to @stereohaven I only have the old version with the yellow and YouView signage. I never even knew that had changed till I saw that picture.
  • Seems especially strange as BT have just made a big point of saying the NowTV channels will be recordable, I know the non-4k boxes were always 500Gb but to retrospectively drop the storage with supposedly more recordable content coming seems very od…
  • The reason given is as below (read 'to save money') 'the TV team have advised us this was due to the way customers are now using the boxes to stream more content rather than record. I've copied a statement that was realised around the time the chan…
  • A more modern home than BT Centre. It will still be around London but a newer building. This has been ongoing for a year it was announced by Gavin Patterson and is a 3-5 year plan. A lot can happen in 3-5 years, unless it is YouView lol the record d…
  • John L said: I wonder what BT are playing at? I too would keep my box. You have already invested a great deal of income (or in Accounting terms: "Revenue") John L Daft comment. You are paying for a service NOT hardware. Try taking a serv…
  • Darren said: If I ever did decide to cancel BT TV and BT altogether I would not be returning my BT TV boxes. One of which is a BT Youview retail box. I been with BT for over 20 years but im now starting getting a little fed up with there price …
  • Yep that’s the one that says ‘you can return the box’ not you must return or you will be charged. I agree the wording is designed to make it sound like you have to return the box but most other companies do actually now make you return the box whate…
  • @TomW Check the email carefully. BT have to advise you that you can return the box for recycling as part of their ‘green’ credentials, so that is a standard email that goes out to everyone. The other email actually says you must return the box or y…

  • Is this not what I wrote about 5 posts above ???
  • @stereohaven Unfortunately I missed the match as I was out of the country. I know during testing the Apple TV was looking a bit poor and not ramping up to the proper quality. Are the complaints about the picture on Apple TV devices or all (of course…
  • The format is HDR10 PQ since alternative format HLG works less well on mobile – and mobile is the telco’s primary target for the HDR service https://www.ibc.org/production/bt-sport-on-target-for-hdr-first-at-uefa-champions-league-final/3899.article…
  • Goodbye said:  "Biggest selling brand box" when I was between replacing my zapper (brilliant bedroom box) and getting the not really suitable for the bedroom because of the racket it makes 4k box I looked at what was available on the market,  t…
  • And Netgem do make a reasonable 4K box (2+2=5 )
  • redchiz said: Curiosity: who makes the BT 4K box? Humax has always made it since release 4 years ago. Someone else makes EE's TV box and Huawei make TalkTalk's box (which you obviously know).
  • Don’t get too hung up on ‘Humax’ making a new box (other box makers are available ) I am certain they won’t be looking at Huawei lol
  • stereohaven said: An extra £5 a month just for HDR on limited content, are they mad?   Yes a bit of a push. HDR on HD channels on the small screen devices will be free. The £5 add on is for both access to the 4K channel and in HDR on la…
  • Sometimes the qually seems to be tied in with free practice series record but the actual race not as that is split between classes. Is it possible to check if it comes up in scheduled after the free practice sessions have recorded. I presume there i…
  • Like I said above this isn’t about getting people to ditch the stick but rather keep people from moving to one if they have YouView for other things and hence then giving them good reason to not look elsewhere. NowTV on its own isn’t the draw, ALL t…
  • why have you got a YouView box
  • Yes you can Your YouView box is just one of the six devices you are allowed to register.
  • Of course it is. There is no 'On Demand' catch up content for Sports therefore if you want to slightly timeshift any football matches/F1 etc, being able to record and watch in your time is massively important (especially if there is more than one th…
  • People always try to say someone or other (sport body, advertisers etc) will demand higher viewing figures and hence demand fta, this was said many times when the last CL rights came up with people quoting uefa were unhappy about viewing figures and…
  • It stands even more. One of the main reasons SKY gave in and agreed a cross deal was because BT had exclusive rights to the CL and it knew with adding the BT Sport channel as a carrot within its own sports package pricing it could do some deals. If …
  • Try looking in the BT store and you can buy and watch all episodes from season 1-7 and then watch them on the YouView box through the BT Player (nobody said which episode or how lol).  You can probably do the same through the amazon app
  • Darren said: Think they are having a go a BT for not letting anyone have FTA highlights of the semi finals of the champions league. Since two English teams are still in the Champions league.  Think AJax may end up in the champions league final.…
  • 'But regarding relevance, remind me again, what has been (and still is being) the televisual event of the decade? And has a single episode of GoT ever been watched on a YouView box? Errr...' @Roy - In answer to the above question - most definitely …
  • Not really I was just informed that the last batch for updates would be released on Monday (following their normal pattern of releasing to 25% of the user base a week) therefore I assumed anybody that hadn’t had the update already by then (as Newfy…
