Broadband bundle subscribers with a YouView box may benefit from an enhanced user experience in the weeks and months to come.
A new software update is being rolled out, designed to deliver search and sound improvements for IPTV viewers in the UK.
One of the improvements is the introduction of Live TV content into the Search Function. This means viewers will be able to search for programmes from the Guide that are on-air now or within the next week.
"The results will appear in a separate ‘On Now & Next’ tab and when selecting a programme from the results that's on-air now, you have the option to tune to the channel," YouView explained.
"If it hasn't aired yet, you have the option to set a recording or a reminder."
Other enhancements include support for Dolby surround sound over HDMI.
"You will be able to enable surround sound over the HDMI connecter through a new setting," YouView noted.
The upgrades are expected to be rolled out in the next two weeks, with YouView bundle subscribers BT and TalkTalk releasing their own upgraded versions in the near future.
