My biggest review ever was the Humax Youview box lead by a consortium way back then. It’s online offerings were slim but that has improved and finally has reached a pinnacle of netflix now being available on YouView.
An update to the YouView App has now been made available in the Apple App store (App version number 1.2.7) is available now in the App Store
This software release includes functionality to connect your YouView box to the new YouView App which is available to download from the Apple App Store. The YouView app available for Apple devices (iOS 5 or later), provides you what’s on TV and radio over the next 7 days, provides additional programme information and lets you record a show while on the move.
For the last few months, I’ve been part of the YouView Humax DTR-T1000 beta testing; so unlike other reviews, this is an actual, proper hands-on review, complete with videos and images you simply won’t find on those other review sites that just rewrite press releases. This is a long one, so you’ll want to grab a beverage before reading.
Just launched on YouView is Sky’s Now TV service. Available in a all-you-can-eat movies subscription format for £15 a month or on a Pay and Play with some movies apparently available from 99p (not that I’ve seen any so far.)
£15 might seem a lot to cough up for movies per month when compared to Love Film or Net Flix however Now TV film offerings are current which Sky seems to have tied up the UK market with and don’t forget you get Live channels on your desktop machine. So is it any good on the YouView Humax box?
