TalkTalk gears up to 2012 YouView roll-out

Test in Q1, launch in the Spring

Mobile application security vulnerability report

YouView, the UK's 'IPTV Freeview', is "on track" to launch in 2012, participant telco TalkTalk has said.

TalkTalk, posting its interim financial results, said: "Development within the YouView team is progressing well, and within TalkTalk we are making great progress on provisioning capability.

"We are on track to offer a value-for-money product of phone, broadband and TV in Spring 2012," it said.

YouView was to have debuted in the summer of 2011, but the release date slipped, allegedly because of disagreements between supporters over the platform's technical specifications.

Before then, during the first three months of 2012, the company will offer a test service for existing customers.

"We anticipate running 'Friends and Family' trials in [FY]Q4 which will focus on the end-to-end customer experience."

TalkTalk said it pumped £2m into YouView during the first half of its current fiscal year, which ended 30 September 2011. It's spending around £4m a year on the service. ®
