Hi would just like to say I got the new box today and it is a very very nice box ,so nice to use slick and so up to date compared to the 4k one , it's up there with sky Q to use . Over the moon with it . No bugs or any problems whatsoever . Hope there's loads of new features to come , well done BT on this one . And hopefully more channels to come to replace the ones we are losing , be nice to see now tv catchup incorporated aswell.
I’ve actually stopped using my Youview boxes and just access my package via firestick 4k which has support for HDR10, HLG, HDR10+, Dolby Vision. I access my aerial feed via HDHomeRun to distribute signal through my network up to 4 TV/devices as the signal is not strong enough to split into two rooms. Therefore I’m paying the £5 a month but not using it due to poor split signal and can’t cancel the second box as in contract.
It's a sagecom bt pro mate , and the multi room is only available with the existing old boxes
Agreed, this box is very good. For me, speed is everything. When I press an action I expect it to be actioned. This box does that and more.
Aside from some minor issues which bt are aware of already, I can safely say its a brilliant product. It looks smart as well as functions well.
Due to now TV, some channels are duplicated which is funny (sky arts and sky news being the two)
A few things that could easily be added to the guide though...
1. Pressing a button (eg red) could set a reminder, rather than pressing 'i' then set reminder.
2. Pressing 'i' on a show that's available on demand but is currently live on that channel but isn't 'new' (aka a repeat) doesn't show the on demand button when it could.
3. Although trivial, some UI elements are not bt themed. Mainly the mini bar. Has a blue progress bar and text. As well as the home screen text on the tiles having blue text. I think a bright purple should be it's replacement or white.
4. During the box setup a third power mode called eco was available but once setup that option is absent.
Very good box, extremely happy with it.
Thanks. I got one a while ago when I changed my flexible tv package with now on MyBT 🙂 the box is much better than previous one.
