YouView is about moving connected TV into the mainstream, according to its CEO Richard Halton.
YouView is looking for its third chairman in three years after Lord Sugar announced he was stepping down from the role.
TalkTalk says its YouView powered TV service reached 80,000 customers as of December 31, 2012 and the company is running installations at the rate of 10,000 per week.
YouView has announced the start of a phased rollout of a new software update. The upgrade to the YouView Humax receiver will be followed by the introduction of the software to YouView boxes on the BT and TalkTalk managed networks.
YouView as introduced a Remote Record App, joining established platforms Sky+ and Virgin Media’s TiVo in the ability to set recordings on the receiver, from an iPhone or iPad.
YouView has launched on the Channel Islands on the JT (the combination of Jersey Telecom and Guernsey’s Wave Telecom) network.
Total Ltd has issued High Court proceedings against YouView over the infringement of its YOUR VIEW trademark.
Just three months after its launch, YouView could be forced to change its name after it lost a High Court appeal brought by a Gloucestershire telecoms firm.
TalkTalk says that its YouView-based TV proposition is growing subscribers at the rate of 1,000 a day. In all, 27,000 of the Huawei-manufactured units have been installed by the telco, one of the partners in the BBC-led hybrid project.
