TalkTalk is finally set to launch a customer trial that will enable people to record internet channels that have been migrated into the YouView TV guide.
The communications provider first began recruiting customers for the trial in August, though few updates were released until this week, when TalkTalk Labs informed customers via email whether they had been successful in joining the trial, which is set to begin on February 7th.
It will see internet channels such as Nickelodeon, MTV and National Geographic, which are currently listed in the TalkTalk player, introduced into the YouView TV Guide.
This will then bring both Freeview channels and TalkTalk channels into one integrated guide - and mean that TalkTalk TV users will no longer need to launch the TalkTalk Player to see their pay-TV channels such as Sky 1 when the upgrade is installed.
TalkTalk has offered paid-for streaming TV and on-demand TV and films since the service launched in launch September 2012, with a separate programme guide provided through the TalkTalk Player, but this will be the first time the two will be merged, providing customers with more features and greater ease of use.
