BT have again announced in the last few days that more linear channels are on their way to the Vision platform. Does anyone know a) when theyre coming and b) if they are coming to YouView ?
Thanks in advance.
I have infinity 2, and youview with great speeds about 70meg was really hoping they would make the live channels available to us on Youview around the same time as bt vision, why is this not possible through the bt vision app on youview?
As far as I know, the linear channels come through the tv guide rather than the Vision app ... although Im sure someone can confirm or deny this ?
Does anyone have an update from BT on the release of the linear channels on Youview ? I assume its a Youview firmware update we're wating for.
As mentioned it will need a firmware upgrade - how they provide the channels I don't know, but it would be interesting, especially as NowTV are hoping to bring in LiveTV on the platform at some date in the future.
The extra channels (IPTV via broadband) have now been officially launched.
It just says
Note: Sport and Extra Channels are available to Infinity customers only, subject to availability.
These products are not yet available on YouView.
Here is the smallprint.
Extra TV channels – Available to new and existing broadband customers that sign up to a 12-month TV Essential Extra contract. If you've got less than 12 months left on your Infinity contract, you'll need to re-contract to Infinity for another 12 months. HD ITV1 not available in NI or Scotland. HD and Blockbuster films cost extra. HD requires a HD ready TV and a HDMI cable (supplied with new, but not replacement boxes). You'll need a minimum line speed of 15Mbps. You will be charged £49 if you are a new BT TV customer or require a replacement box for Extra TV Channels. New to Infinity 1 and Unlimited Infinity 1 customers will also be charged £25 activation (rising to £30 on 22nd March 2013). You'll need a BT Home Hub 3. A 10 metre cable or Engineer Install will be provided if required. Quality of content depends on local transmitter, suitable rooftop aerial and availability of digital channels.
