Broadband speed requirements

A YouView Box FAQ

Ensure good quality picture whilst watching On Demand content in standard definition...

We recommend a minimum speed of 3Mb/s (Megabits per second) to ensure a good quality picture whilst watching On Demand content in standard definition.
 
If you want to watch On Demand in HD, then we recommend over 5Mb/s.
 
For UHD programmes, you would need significantly higher speeds. Speak to your Broadband provider to find out if they offer UHD programmes and how much speed they recommend.

BT Customers: For UHD content BT recommend a minimum speed of 44Mb/s to ensure a good picture and sound quality.

You can check your existing internet speed using our Availability Checker (found at the bottom of our website home page).
