- ABOUT THE YOUVIEW SERVICE
1.2 Because of the way the YouView Service is set up:
1.2.1 your IE TV is the responsibility of the company who manufactured it;
1.2.2 we provide you with a method of accessing Content on your IE TV via the YouView user interface;
1.2.4 we are not responsible for scheduling any Content, the availability of any Content or the contents of the Content, none of which forms part of the YouView Service;
1.2.5 the Content available and features of the YouView Service may vary, be different or be unavailable depending on the IE TV you have (for example we may not be able to make certain Content available on certain devices or IE TVs);
1.2.6 the Content available on the YouView Service may change from time to time. It won't be practical for us to notify you in advance of all Content changes and instead you should keep checking our website for details of what's available; and
1.2.7 the features of the YouView Service may change from time to time. We'll try not to make any significant changes which are likely to be to your disadvantage without notifying you in advance on the website.

7.4 Interruptions to your broadband internet connection: If your broadband internet connection is interrupted or unavailable you may not be able to access certain elements of the YouView Service.
