    "Interested folk are asked to surrender their emails to be notified about availability."

    Hahaha this is so true. I switched from Orange to giffgaff about 10 months ago, then to 3 when giffgaff utterly screwed over their customers a couple of months ago. I STILL get texts from EE, it's really annoying!

    Sounds like the sort of functionality that youview are aiming for however with BT/talk talk now calling the shots i'm not sure it'll ever make it... Seem more interested in locking it down than sharing content (for example no netflix/now tv entertainment/amazon prime due to a silly rule that all TV content must be 'broadcast' for it to appear despite ignoring this rule for films...)
    Trust

    It's the sharing feature that grabs my attention, Windows Media Extenders were an amazing idea and I would be buying in instantly if YouView could share recordings and features around to my other TVs (App or client box, whatever) and to tablets via an app.

    Re: News - Mobile operator EE launches set top box

    These are feature I have on my HTPC, but it certainly wasn't an out of box experience to setup.

    I have 6 HD tuners (4xT2 and 2,S2) and can share them with media extenders (got a 360 in the bedroom for this alone), other PCs, andriod phones/tablets my windows phone etc. I am not limited to any number of devices which is nice but am limited to 8 streams or 6 muxs.

    As said it took a lot of setup so if this work out of the box it might be worth it for my parents (currently youview).

    Netgem (the company that makes the EE TV box) should sell it to end users so they don't have to sign up to EE Broadband.
