Does anyone have any experience of BT Vision (the latest version, with Freeview HD and the Youview box)?
The current offer is for £5 a month (on top of your broadband and line rental), plus a one off charge of about £50 for set up and delivery of the box. For that, you have to sign a twelve month contract, but the Youview box (retail price c. £250) is supplied free. From what I can understand from the website, it gives the ability to pause live TV, record programmes (single or complete series), and has access to all the catch up programmes. Usage doesn't come off your monthly download allowance, so that's not a problem.
So far this seems like an ad for the product, because there don't seem to be any negatives, but a lot of the online reviews seem poor. The problem is, it's hard to differentiate between reviews for the old version (which I understand was poor) and the new one. Has anyone else looked at this? My average download connection speed is 11 mb, so I don't think that would be a problem.
