New Youview STB?

Go to solution

Hi,

 

Just seen the BT website (TV main page) and it seems to show the Youview box with a BT logo on the righthand side and possibly the whole unit looks slights smaller... Can anyone confirm if BT are now using a new box? 

 

All the other pages show the Humax box although they look very similar.

 

I am looking to upgrade from BT Vision but would rather get a new box that I believe is due, hopefully it'll be like the talktalk box which is passive cooled rather than noisey fans.

 

Thanks

Hi ya... just http://www.bt.com/

 

It's the same look to the box but logo is different and maybe smaller but tbh, never seen the box in real life.  The one in the new BT advert has the BT logo too.

That looks like a Youview box to me, but with BT branding.  The top looks to have more of a rounded edge but as I say, never seen one in the flesh.

Is BT going to start to issue the new 1TB Humax box instead of the current 500GB one?

Easybreeze - I have compared the picture to my 4 week old BT box and both the proportions and shape are spot on - its a standard BT branded Humax box. The box I have is near as **bleep** it silent - certainly never heard a fan!

 

Kryten 22UK- lots of talk about the new bigger drive probably from people who want one - nothing official has been mentioned. Whatever size box you get, if you already think you will fill 1TB then in due course even that will be too small for you!

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

 

Tim

Originally the Humax was only going to be supplied by BT as a stopgap before the Pace boxes were ready, so they just used standard 'out the factory' unbranded units.

 

I would imagine now that the Pace deal has been binned (due to unreliability with the Pace box) that BT have done a deal with Humax as their main supplier and that they will start to be able to provide BT branded units. I think they'll also want to start supplying remotes with BT button on at some stage.....
