I have been researching YouView for a while and thought you might be interested in this news report today in TechRadar -
Ordered Youview from BT got confirmation my box will be arriving Friday, paid £49 + £6.95 PP, recontracted just my vision unlimited service for 12 months (was on a rolling contract I also have BT Infinity) at a reduction of £2.50 per month for the first six months (£10 per month) then £12.50 for the rest of the contract.
Was told that Youview orders were only being dealt with BT`s Doncaster call centre, so anyone calling to order would be put through to customer options Doncaster, also asked about my BT Vision Box (Black without the software upgrade) would I be able to use as multiroom? And the ESPN card? Good luck I was told if I could do it?
Were you out of contract for both Vision and BB? And if so did you have to renew both and get discounts on both?
OK I just ordered mine by calling 0800 100 400
I paid the standard £49 activation and £6.95 delivery contracting Vision Unlimited for 12 months with a £1-?? per month discount for 12 months. I was out of contract for Vision but my Phone and BB Option 3 were in contract. I only recontracted my Vision service.
The box is being delivered on Friday.
I was told that I MUST return my silver box.

I was out of contract with BT Vision - been on a rolling contract for 6 weeks, not out of contract with BT Infinity - the £2.50 per month discount applies just to my BT Vision re-contract.
