How many Youview backwards epg channels are there?

Had a quick look around the web but can't find an answer, if you use the backwards epg on youview, are all the channels (ove 100) available, or is it just the main channels, like the ones from bbc, itv and channel 4 & 5? thanks

Perhaps this question would be better posed in a Youview forum?

Obviously it would be but in answer to the question, yes it is just the main channels. Who would want to replay last weeks Argos TV channel anyway....

Have you got a Youview box John? Are you also a BT Vision subscriber? I'd love to know more about how they work together...

Sorry I just assummed what with all the talk on here of the new BT Youview service it would be ok, but you know what they say about assumptions... There doesn't seem to be a BT Youview forum anyway, maybe they should start one.

So what is included then? Apart from channels 1-5, do we get channels like film 4? E4, BBC 3 & 4? ESPN? 5 usa and 5*?

Maybe a list of what is included could be useful.

If you want to avoid vague answers then you should ask people that are using Youview. Head over to http://community.youview.com/youview and ask there. The only people currently with BT Youview are early adopters/beta testers and they probably aren't allowed to answer questions due to NDAs anyway.

Not true, got my box in the post yesterday - sister in law got her's last week. Vision platform is similar to the New Vision boxes, though unlike the new box does appear to work. Will have a play today come back with any gripes.

I'll have a look tonight just to be sure but.... I'm pretty sure Film 4 isn't included but that BBC1/2/3/4 are, ITV1/2/3/4 and the +1s are as are C4 More4 and E4 and C5. Basically, if you can see it on the C5/C4/ITV/BBC replay sites then it should be on the youview 7 day backwards epg.

I think the NDA no longer applies as the box is now out in the open and available to buy.
