YouView launches Quest factual content
| 10 October 2014
Free-to-air factual entertainment TV channel Quest is to make its programmes available to watch via the YouView UK non-subscription on-demand service for seven days after broadcast.
Leading Quest programming will be made accessible with YouView via a brand new on-demand player, Quest OD, as well as from YouView's seven day scroll back function within its programme guide. Quest OD was built by the newly-launched Connected Solutions business from the communications infrastructure company Arqiva. Tom Cape, Director of Connected Solutions, which represents the merged teams of Arqiva and the recently acquired Capablue, said: "Quest OD is a great demonstration of the strengths our two companies' combined offering can bring to YouView. Capablue has years of experience building players for YouView and brings this unique insight to Arqiva's heritage in television distribution."
Added YouView CEO Richard Halton: "We're delighted Quest has decided to launch its catch up player on YouView. This adds even more great on-demand content to our seamless and easy to use TV service for our customers to enjoy."
