By 16 May 2014

YouView isn't standing still and the YouView hardware supplied by BT isn't either. The Freeview PVR and catch-up TV service set-top box needs to keep evolving in the face of both Sky's and Virgin's formidable - albeit expensive - services, and that's... >>

Humax HDR-1000S freesat with freetime review

By 6 March 2013

Humax DTR-T1000 YouView PVR review

By 31 July 2012

YouView is one of the most complicated products ever to launch. It's not so much technically difficult to do what has been done here, but it involves a lot of what, in management terms, are known as "stakeholders". Namely, the people who have a vested... >>
