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.

The app also provides full listings for 70 digital TV and radio channels over a seven day period.

Richard Halton, Chief Executive Officer, YouView said, “This is just the first stage in our companion device strategy, offering even more value to UK consumers, and we plan to extend the functionality of this app as part of our on-going development of the YouView proposition.”

The YouView App is compatible with all YouView set-top boxes – it was developed at YouView and securely connects up to 5 mobile devices.

Separately, Sky has updated its Sky+ app, which now doubles as a remote control, to include full on demand listings.
