TalkTalk is rolling out its Next Generation YouView service from this week.

The upgrade will give its 1.3 million TV customers what it describes as a "faster, smarter and more visual and intuitive TV experience".

Among the enhancements are a simpler and cleaner design, with a new image-led layout and shortcuts to popular apps and programmes.

Customers will also be able to set reminders and record live TV from their mobiles courtesy of the TalkTalk TV Planner App.

This means people don't have to miss their favourite show even if they are held up at work and unlikely to be home in time.

Meanwhile, the More TV area has been redesigned to provide easier access to TalkTalk TV's sports, kids and entertainment Boosts, as well as blockbuster movies that are available to rent and own.

Finally, TalkTalk says its revamped TV platform offers quicker boot-up and navigation between channels, while apps such as BBC iPlayer should load more quickly.

Aleks Habdank, Managing Director of TalkTalk TV, commented: "We’re passionate about finding new ways to bring our customers the best quality products and services at an unbeatable price.

"The way we watch TV is constantly evolving and our customers now want to mix and match between popular shows on the likes of the BBC and ITV, rent a movie every now and then, binge watch Netflix boxsets, or dip in and out of extra Sky Sports, kids or entertainment channels."

Mr Habdank added that TalkTalk has been "working tirelessly" to exceed its customers' needs, which is why it gives them access to the the best TV without committing them to a lengthy contract.

"It’s TV on your terms and we’re firmly becoming the smart choice for savvy households," he said.   The announcement comes shortly after TalkTalk confirmed it has boosted its network capacity to cope with high demand for Jeremy Clarkson's new programme The Grand Tour, which is being shown on Amazon Prime.
