​It says 'refurb' for sure, look again

If I have BT Internet can I just use this to get the BT TV options or do I need to pay the extortionate £49 fee to "activate it"?

​You'll probably need to pay the activation fee plus the monthly subs. Perhaps they may give you some discount if you say you already have the box.

Selling mine for £80 , only set it up and my aerial not strong enough for it , new not refurb

Personally I've found the most reliable youview box to be the Talk Talk Huawei DN370T 320GB Ftreeview PVR I bought from ebay for less than £30!

It used not new

Great little box. Just a note but BT are currently offering this box with the "Entertainment Plus" TV package for a measly £5 a month with no activation fee - so £60 for the box overall (12 month contract). Fantastic price if you ask me.

I've just cancelled Sky so am looking around for a box to replace Sky+ - it all gets a bit confusing as to which service to go for and which box!

Is Youview the best option out of Youview, Freeview and Freesat (Freeplay?)? And which box?

Thanks

Just to confirm what JPS said above, I got same deal £5 per month and no activation fee, only cost was delivery.

Additional bonus which may be of use to others is because I was already paying £5 a month for my full BT Sports app they cancelled this and my £5 is now paying for the entertainment package. In effect I am paying absolutely no more per month than before but now additionally have the sport on my TV as well as mobile devices.

YouView set up was reasonably straightforward, I'm using a powerline adapter for connecting the Internet aspect of the box and it took a wee bit of faffing but working great now.

Oh and an uncharacteristic bit of praise for BT, communications via text & email were superb, in fact noted a huge improvement generally in their customer service.

I got that exact box for £50 brand new via a local ad about 3 years ago. It was far from reliable and needed a factory reset a few times. It died completely last year. Still I guess I may have been unlucky.

My family and I have had a few different Youview/Freeview+ recorders and they all seem a bit hit and miss for reliability which is not surprising given how unreliable hard disks can be. I have had two of the previous BT Freeview models. One has lasted very well whilst the other died pretty quickly.

The Talk Talk Huawei DN370T 320GB is a slightly more basic box and the often quite slow to move through the menus. However, it has proved to be pretty reliable.

The box in this thread is easily the quickest Youview box that I have used but can be bought for a lot cheaper than this "deal".

Currys ebay outlet site

Great box, although the UHD one is even better and I got one of those for about this price. Either get subsidised by BT if you already have BT Broadband, or buy second hand for £50, this is too dear...

That is total ****, it takes 3 mins to switch on each day, and runs hot even on standby! It's also unresponsive and laggy. Apart from that it's fine though...

​thanks, but looks like you can't get TV only, the very next step is to choose bt broadband option and I'm stuck with my current provider for next 6 months...

Had virgin tivo box before find this lot better
If anyone thinking of getting HD free view recorder this is lot better alternative
