Things to check before you get YouView
Before you buy anything, let’s make sure you can use YouView in your home. Here’s a checklist of things you’ll need:
An aerial with a good signal
At least a 3Mb/s broadband connection
Don’t forget to check your digital TV coverage and broadband speed using our Availability Checker.
Does it matter who my broadband provider is?
No, we work with any broadband connection.
Do I need a monthly subscription?
The choice is yours.
Buy a box from a retail store and you can use it subscription free. We have thousands of free On Demand programmes to watch but if you want a little more, we offer a range of subscription services, like Netflix, you can sign up to.
Looking for something a bit extra? You can get even more channels from one of our broadband partners.
Our Entertainment page can tell you more.
Do I need a TV licence?
Yes you do. You have to be covered by a valid TV Licence if you watch or record any TV as it's being broadcast. For full details of the cost, terms and conditions of a TV Licence, please see the TV Licensing website.
