YouView and broadband usage...?

Now that the 'Catch Up' TV services (iPlayer, 4OD, etc...) are not in the BT Vision section of the new YouView box, does using them now count toward my Broadband usage?  It didnt count with the BT Vision box, but I cant find a reference anywhere to whether this has now changed.

 

cheers

Hi mikef

 

If you look in the BT Section of Youview and the help menu, there is a FAQ explaining about broadband usage what counts and what dos`nt.

Thanks for that, I'm hunting around the YouView site but cannot find a reference to it, or a BT specific section....

http://www.youview.bt.com/

 

"YouView is also available with any of our great BT Broadband or BT Infinity packages and with a BT Vision subscription all your on demand viewing (not just BT Vision programmes) is exempt from any broadband usage allowance - so you don't need to worry how much you watch."

 

So if you get a BT Vision subscription, even their £4 per month offering, then your YouView usage won't be counted against your broadband usage.
