HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Hide/unhide channels
The edit channels feature isn’t available on all versions of YouView but we are looking to make this available to all our customers as soon as possible.
Select which version of YouView you're using to show the steps:
 
This is the NEW YouView menu. If your menu looks like this, read here:

With this version of YouView, you can’t manually hide channels from your guide. We have plans to bring this feature to you as soon as possible.
 
In the meantime, we do automatically hide adult channels in your guide. If you want to hide/unhide the adult channels, you can do this in the settings.

Any channels you chose to hide before the update will remain hidden. To unhide them:
 
  1. Bring up the menu with the Y or YouView button on your remote
  2. Select Settings
  3. Go to the Signal & Connection area and select TV Channels
  4. Select Restore hidden channels. If you unhide hidden channels, you won't be able to re-hide them until we enable this feature in a future software update

 
This is the ORIGINAL YouView menu. If your menu looks like this, follow these steps:
  1. Press the Guide button
  2. Press the Yellow button to bring up the edit channel mode
  3. Enter your PIN. Forgotten your PIN?
  4. Select the channels you want to hide
  5. Press the Yellow button again to save your selection
  6. To unhide a channel you'll need bring up the edit channel mode and press the Red button to restore all channels
