YouView will launch this Spring, says TalkTalk

Consumer trials coming

SANS - Survey on application security programs

ISP TalkTalk has reiterated its expectation that YouView, the would-be UK standard IPTV platform, will launch this coming Spring.

The company's CEO, Dido Harding, told investors today that initial work getting customers to understand what YouView is all about has begun, laying the groundwork for consumer trials of the service.

YouView was to have gone live in the Summer of 2011, but arguments over the service's technical specs and the location of content providers within its electronic programme guide forced the launch to be put back to 2012.

YouView is backed by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five and BT, in addition to TalkTalk. Terrestrial broadcasting infrastructure company Arqiva was also one of the original supporters but late last year closed down SeeSaw, its own, web-based IPTV service, expected to be part of the YouView portfolio.

In May 2011, Technicolor dropped out of YouView. ®
