What is Plusnet’s YouView TV service?
Plusnet’s YouView service includes all of Freeview’s free-to-air channels, plus 15 channels that don’t come with Freeview as standard, including CNN, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, Eurosport, MTV, and National Geographic. This costs £5/mth for those who have Plusnet ‘Fibre Unlimited’ or ‘Unlimited Extra’ broadband contracts – you could only sign up for the service if you were on these broadband or fibre deals.
In addition, you have the ability to pause live television and record programmes to watch back at a later date. YouView also enables you to run apps, such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, Netflix, and NOW TV, so long as you have accounts for these services set-up (and pay for them if required).
On top of this, you can also pay an additional £15.69/mth to watch BT Sport via YouView.
