Re: New TV box coming?


I've long campaigned for more info in a release date for this.

I have the top package and expect HDR capability.

It will be a real kick in the teeth if I'm not offered a favourable upgrade to the newer box, the old one is plagued by sound dropouts on live football. 

That said I'm happy to test one if available!

@4KTV Fan: "I will probable leave BT in December, too little too late."

Your regular histrionics on here won't be missed.

It is now mid March 2021, leaving all the rhetoric behind does anyone have an update on progress with the testing, delivery and expected implementation date for this desperately needed new TV box?

@chilton55555 one of the BT employees on here made reference in another thread about the current UHD box being the only ones in customers hands. To me, this would suggest that BT staff are trialing them at home... 🤔

I've got my fingers crossed! My Sky Q box (like many others) suffers from sounds dropouts which Sky have yet to fix in almost 8 months. Looking for a great alternative. This new BT TV box sounds promising

Re: New TV box coming?

@Deano123 it's well documented that Humax have released an Android TV Freeview PVR with three tuners. Humax are/were the provider of the BT TV boxes. BT staff on here have made subtle references to new boxes possibly being tested at the moment but not by the public. This normally means BT staff are either testing them at home. Nothing even semi-official has been announced though..  But seeing as though Youview as a platform seems pretty much dead, is it possible they could move to Freeview Play for added functionality? But the new Humax box supports Freeview Play, Android TV, 4K and HDR with Dolby Atmos... 🤷🏻

Afraid not @Deano123
Things like this are always the same - everyone will be under NDA until the day that the product is announced to the press ... which is usually not until the day it launches.

Any more news on dates.      To switch to BT I would need a second box and don't want to put the cabling in.  so a wifi capable box is a deal breaker
