BT launches multi-room YouView service
| 03 June 2014
As the non-subscription on-demand video service grows in the UK, YouView has been given a boost by BT who is offering customers the option of having two YouView+ boxes in different rooms in their homes.

The Extra Box will automatically include the same channel subscriptions and bolt-ons as a home's principal YouView, facilitated, says BT, by high-speed fibre connectivity which supports simultaneous viewing of live channels on multiple TVs, in high definition quality.

"We are delighted to be able to offer BT customers the added flexibility of having two YouView+ boxes in their home," explained, BT director of TV Alex Green. "Over the past year, we have transformed our service by introducing pay-TV channels delivered in fantastic HD quality on our market-leading YouView+ box. We believe this offers the best quality TV experience and the most competitive bundle with fibre in the market."
