Youtube app would be nice to have on the Youview box. I the now at times use the Youtube app via my Samsung smart TV.

Re: Can we have youtube app

Yeah I guess as more and more buy smart tvs then there would be less need for some of the apps. I'm still on my old HD non smart tv for now.
It's maybe about the only thing I miss since ditching VM a while back.
Hopefully one day they add it, though I guess youtube need to agree and not sure if there's a cost involved. Though going back to my VM mention, I doubt they'd pay much if anything.

My ideal scenario woukd be new tv but the missus seems to think things like food, clothes etc. Come first.....silly woman 😀

Re: Can we have youtube app

My experience with smart TVs has not been great, I have a 4 year old Panasonic, it updated for the first year, but after that nothing.

 

The Youtube on my TV is not very good, after watching HD for a short time the picture becomes fuzzy. ( I have tried cat 5 & wifi both give the same result)

 

Not prepared to buy a TV every couple of years, so I bought a Amazon Firestick(I have the old  one which cost £25 but the latest is nearly £40), which plugs into a spare HDMI socket and it connects wirelessly to my hub.

 

The only downside the app choice is limited, eg I cannot get the Tripadvisor app.

A more flexible solution is to just cast your phone, tablet or computer to the TV using a Chromecast or similar device. No worrying then about different makes and models of TV and PVR having the right sort of "smartness" that you want as you can have it all.

If the soundbar is connected up appropriately then that is possible using a casting solution (doing it now with my AV sound system).

Connect your soundbar to your TV.

My tv doesn't have optical out.

Yes there are workarounds but most devices these days have youtube app and all I'm asking is the boffins at BT consider adding it.
