YouView pulls app as it tells users they're not its customers
YouView users are being told they are not its customers, as the hybrid TV platform changes its strategy.
In a sign of things to come for users of the platform, which combines Freeview channels with online streaming and catch-up services, the YouView mobile app, that enables viewers to set recordings and control their box from almost anywhere in the world, is being phased out and will be completely withdrawn on 31st March 2020.
YouView is telling people to use BT and TalkTalk branded apps rather than its own stuff which is all well and good unless you've forked out for a YouView Box.
I've never used the service, but thought the idea of YouView (services piggy backing off the Freeview EPG) a good idea for those that couldn't afford or want a full pay tv service, but it looks like its days are numbered now.
