YouView Network Streaming

Hi there,

 

I was looking to get the YouView box from BT however had a quick question before I do buy it.

 

I have a NAS on my network at the minute with films and photos on etc.. I was wondering if the YouView box is able to see devices on the network and stream from them?

 

Thanks,

Hi

 

No, the YouView box can't see other network devices or stream content from them.

To be honest I wouldn't get one.

Best off just getting your self a standard free view/sat box if you want the extra channels.

 

If you can get Virgin where you are thats the best way to go as everyone who has one of their boxes says they are spot on.

It's touted for a future update but, to be honest, if you have a Smart TV / Blu-Ray player from the last 3 years it'll probably have DLNA networking on it already. I have these two means to stream from my NAS already so don't need yet another.....

I'd be amazed if Netflix and Lovefilm didn't join the lineup soon, although of course getting the box through BT means you get BT Vision anyway
