This link was was posted over on the Digital Spy Youview part of the forums.
There was rummers about this last year but the same rummers have come up yet again.
I would not mind of BT started its own entertanment channel as long as it was a little better than there AMC channel and broadcast more hours.
I do watch AMC but I cant say I watch it everyday and dont seem to watch AMC at the weekends.
They would be great if they did, since BT lost Fox, they need to do something to soften the loss.
This could prove very interesting. There must be lots of partnership opportunities for commissioning original content, and there are still lots of U.S. shows that don't get picked up for UK broadcasting.
It is great to see that more channels are slowly becoming available on other platforms (other than Sky) and with the recent intrdouction of C5 HD onto Freeview this is another good step forward.
Youview was a great idea on paper but with so many interested parties with clearly different agendas, Youview is just now left with two main shareholders. BT will need to consolidate their platforms as now they have taken over EE, they are running Youview, BT Vision and EE TV.
Perhaps we may just have the Youview version without the Youview name?
Wouldn't mind if the EE box replaced the current Youview box, then we'd have access to NowTV Entertainment, Sky Movies & Sports as well as BT Sport & AMC in one box. Maybe I.m just greedy :).
