My YouView box is due to be delivered tomorrow (27/6) for the trial period, just curious if anyone else is one of the 2,500 testers? Quite surprised there has been nothing on El Reg recently for this.
Okay, so DPD have just delivered the box, within the stated hour delivery slot as well which is always nice! Had a quick look inside and the contents are;
2 x Homeplugs, was not expecting these and probably dont need them, my BT Homehub sits next to the TV and its all on the same wall as the BT socket, but nice to have all the same.
1 x Youview box - Manufactured by Humax (Good to know, I like Humax kit)
1 x HDMi cable
1 x manual
1 x getting started guide
1 x Remote
Can't do much else with it right now, but once I get home could be a fun evening and just in time for Saturdays Tour De France start!

YouView is as far as I understand it is a Freeview + HD Box, with built in IPTV for all the major channels in the UK along with options for pay per view/ subscription options. I am assuming it has a HDD in, but maybe everything is run over IPTV, the EPG I think allows me to go back an hour/day etc and just click play for whatever I want to watch. Might be interesting with my 40GB monthly limit from BT...
