If you keep up to date with the latest technology news you may have come across people talking about YouView. But what is it, and how will it change the way you watch television?
The best way to describe the new set top box which will be available in the early part of 2012 is to say it is as simple to use and watch as Freeview. But with this device you get access to video on demand and catch-up TV services across the internet.
Through your flat panel TV you will be able to enjoy the same digital content, but also be able to benefit from such things as the ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5 and BBC iPlayer. These services will all be able to be accessed through your television as long as it is connected to a YouView Box.
For those wondering about the changes this will bring to their TV viewing experience, YouView will allow people to watch programmes they thought they had missed and use their TV guide to see things which have already been shown. You wonâ€™t have to miss your favourite shows ever again.
The box will also act as a digital video recorder with the ability to record, pause and rewind live TV depending on your preferences.
The content you watch can be viewed in high definition and gives you so much more choice when it comes to TV viewing. Just install your TV on the wall using TV brackets and the YouView Box can be fitted just below it, so you can keep everything looking tidy.
