BT has launched a smaller and sleeker version of its YouView+ set-top box, which will be made available to new TV subscribers.

The design has the same distinct style as BT's Home Hub 4 and Hub 5 wireless routers, with downlit LEDs used to indicate power, record and broadband functions.

BT has removed the fan from its YouView+ device, meaning it now takes up less space.

In addition, the set-top box has a faster start up time and offers easier navigation of the TV programme menu.

Users can pause and rewind live TV and record up to two channels at once.

The box - which comes with a new remote control - has a 500GB hard drive,enabling users to store up to 300 hours of SD TV or 125 hours of HD TV recordings.

Alex Green, Director of BT TV, said the new YouView+ box from BT has "all the functions and features that viewers love about the service, but it’s even better".

"It’s been a big hit with customers who have already tried it out," he stated.

"They’ve said it is smaller, quieter and faster. The new YouView+ box from BT has been designed in the style of other BT devices, so will look great in any living room."
